for christmas steve bought 5 more cds than dvds as presents for his freinds. he bought 21 in all . how many cds did he buy?

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

means number of cd together with dvd is equal to ---------how much

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

If you write these as equations, it helps in the analysis. CD=DVD+5 CD+DVD=21 CD=21-DVD 21-DVD=DVD+5 16=2DVD DVD=8 Which means CD=13. We then check if the solution satisfies the original equation. 8+13=21 and there are 5 more CDs than DVDs :)

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

So CDs = DVDs + 5 CDs + DVDs = 21 Substitute. DVDS + 5 + DVDs = 21 2DVDs = 16 DVDs = 8 CDs = 13

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so u have variable CD & DVD

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

and u purchased 5 CD's more than the DVD so No. of CD = No. of DVD + 5

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

Now total no is equal to 21

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

so on my paper i should have x=x+5

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

right

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

now what is x = it is number of dvds

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

Not x=x+5, x=y+5 is more appropriate.

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes dear helper cd is more No. of CD = No. of DVD + 5

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok that was a good tip polrek

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

now i get it

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

we can keep No. of CD = x +5, No. of DVD x

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

x = x - 5 -x -x -------- -5 whould be the answer

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

no no we have to add number of cd with no of dvd

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

i.e., x + x + 5 = ?

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

7x

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

no wait

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

no 5 can't be added into x because it dint have x

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

2x+5

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

thats the answer

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

which is equal to?

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

what do you mean to equal

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

means total i.e., no. of cd + no. of dvd = ?

7 years ago

5 divided by 2

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

2.5

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

im confused

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

no dear 2x+5 = 21

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

now solve it

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

i forgot the 21 i didnt see that sorry

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

answer is 16

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

now tell me x is equal to ?

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

9

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

no look at the equation carefully

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

2x = 21 - 5 => 2x = 16 => x = 16 /2 => x = ??

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

answer is 8

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

gr8 u did it now u got to know how to reach this point

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

but x is number of dvd so number of cd will be equal to ??

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

i feel like an idiot because it was so obvios but i got it right finally thank you very mutch

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

13 cds

i have 408=134+1x

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

5:50 im in virginia

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

ok that one perimeter = 2 * (L+W) => 408 = 2*(L+W)

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

i had seen a movie that was from virginia...... A Walk To Remember...................ultimate one

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

408 = 134 + X -134 -134 ------------- 274=1x --- --- 1 1 x=274

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

solve the equation...b4 i complete my cigarrette give me answer 408 = 2*(L+W) L is given in the question

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

408 = 2 x (L+W)

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

L

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

=134

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

134X274=36,716cm sqaurd

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes L = 134 L+W = 408/2 L+W = ??

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

134+274=??? what does the /2 mean

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

does that mean sqaurd

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

means 408 divided by 2 =

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

204

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

then 204 = 134 + w

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

oh 204-134=70 70+134=204

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

gr8 so width is equal to ??

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

274

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

no

7 years ago
OpenStudy (anonymous):

204

7 years ago
