Storyboard Text

  • Hey Paul, I got you some treats.
  • Sweet! What did you get?
  • I got 2 cookies and a few lollipops.
  • Yum! That sounds so good. How much was it.
  • The total cost was $38. The two cookies were $4 each and all the lollipops I got were $3 each.
  • How many lollipops did you get?
  • I am not really sure.
  • its ok, we can figure it out by creating an equation.
  • 8+ 3x= 38
  • I only remember that each lollipop was $3
  • So, since you got 2 cookies for $4 each(2x4=8). So we will add 8 to our equation. So if we don't know how many lollipops there are we will label it x. our equation is 8+3x=38
  • First we subract 8 from both sides
  • Lastly we divide 30 by 3
  • Yay! Thanks for helping me.
  • 8+3x=38 8+3x+38      -8=30 30/3=10 The answer is x=10
  • Let's solve this
