Storyboard Text

  • I am having a party for my birthday! There are 4 guests at my party. Each guest gets a goodie bag with an equal amount of cookies per bag. If there are 16 cookies in total, I need to know how many each guest will receive.
  • =
  • On one side of the equation, I have 4 goodie bags. I also have 4 cookies. Which means 4 goodie bags added to 4 cookies equals to the total 16 cookies. Therefore, an equation would be:4x + 4 = 16x = goodie-bags
  • =
  • 4x + 4 = 16
  • 4x = 16
  • -4
  • -4
  • First I subtracted 4 cookies from both sides to only have the goodie-bags remaining. Since in each bag, there is an equal amount, I divided the 12 cookies left between the 4 bags (12 ÷ 4 = 3). This shows us that there will be 3 cookies per goodie-bag.
  • =
  • 4x + 4 = 16
  • 4x = 16
  • -4
  • 1x = 3
  • -4
  • Thank you so much for the amazing party! And, of course, for the 3 cookies in the goodie-bag! Happy birthday!
