  • Hey Sabrina! Are you ready for your birthday party?
  • Im as ready and excited as ever! But... don't we need to do something first?
  • We need to double-check that we have everything we need in order to go to the party! We need to provide every guest with 3 cups and 5 paint palettes-- which means we have to multiply, subtract, and divide in order to find out how many items in total we need to bring. 
  • Whaaaaat?! That sounds super frustrating and hard!
  • Its really easy, actually! You only need to preform 6 steps in order to find out how many items we are bringing to your party.
  • Since there are 16 guests coming (including us three,) 5 paint palettes, and an unknown y, we can infer that the equation is 48 = 5 + 16x .
  • 16 of these cups times x
  • And since there needs to be 3 cups per guest, the x must be 3... so, 16 x 3 = 48-- which means we need to bring 48 cups in total plus five paint palettes! So, in conclusion, the y (amount of items we need to bring to the party) is 53 since 48 + 5 = 53.
  • Im SO ready and excited!
  • YAY! We have everything we need for the party! LETS HAVE FUN AND GET STARTED!!!!!
