Here we go yall @phi @e.mccormick

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

This one seems decently easy so i will work it out also

OpenStudy (phi):

what is answer?

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

wait i don't understand how they are wording it?

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

3.5 * 3.5

OpenStudy (phi):

no wait. Let me write it out, because it is trickier than I first thought The product 3.5 times the quantity 3.5 more than a number n is 73.5 It is "understood" that when people write the quantity ..... they mean put parens around the phrase that follows "the quantity" in other words, we read it as The product 3.5 times the quantity (3.5 more than a number n ) is 73.5

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

okay fwew thats what i was thinking, is that correct?

OpenStudy (phi):

The product 3.5 times the quantity (3.5 more than a number n ) is 73.5 Here is how I would do it The product 3.5 times becomes 3.5 * the quantity (3.5 more than a number n ) becomes (3.5 more than n) or (3.5+n) is becomes ? 73.5 stays as is can you glue that together?

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

\[3.5(3.5+n)=73.5\] it looks right to me, but i could be wrong

OpenStudy (phi):

yes give it a try

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

and i got that x=17.5 if my equation is correct

OpenStudy (phi):

yes

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

it was right !!! okay i have 2 more

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

OpenStudy (phi):

any thoughts?

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

1 sec i got this in the bag lol

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

I got: 40+(4.50 * p)= 112 p=16

OpenStudy (phi):

yes

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

1 more, and it doesn't appear horribly hard so i will give it my best go haha

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

I got 4(44-2)=64

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

woops i mean 4(44-a)=64

OpenStudy (phi):

yes, you are getting the idea on this

OpenStudy (bookworm14):

I PASSED !!! omg im gonna have to go celebrate, thank you so so much !!!!! @phi
