Jaden’s teacher had 4 boxes of pens that each contained y pens. She took 6 pens out of one of the boxes and told her 17 students to divide the remaining pens equally among themselves. Which expression shows the number of pens each student got?

emily101:

17/6-4y, 6+4y/17, 4y/17,17/4y-6, 4y-6/17, 6-4y/17

jhonyy9:

She took 6 pens out of one of the boxes what mean this ?

emily101:

jhonyy9:

this mean 4y -6 yes ?

jhonyy9:

$$\color{#0cbb34}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @jhonyy9 this mean 4y -6 yes ? $$\color{#0cbb34}{\text{End of Quote}}$$ from the total of 4y she took out 6 so 4y -6 ok ?

emily101:

jhonyy9:

@snowflake0531

jhonyy9:

do you know the correct answer here ?

snowflake0531:

umm so well, like what jhonyy9 said, it's 4y-6, but then because it divides to 17 people it's (4y-6)/17
