I had x bandages at the beginning of the week. I noted I used ½ of them on Tuesday. and 12 on Thursday. On friday I received five 5 bandages. In the end of the week I had 32. How many bandages did I have at the beginning of the week
Lets start by finding a equation. how about: X - X(1/2)-12+5 = 32 So what is X equal to?
Step 1: simplify both sides x/2-7=32 Step 2: add 7 to both sides x/2 = 39 Step 3: multiply 2 to both sides x=78 So that is the answer
Thank you so much for helping me figure out the equation. Now I need to go back home
