thx 4 the help i got the steps

You're welcome and I'm glad you understood the steps. Now use that strategy with your other word problems. Identify what the variable(s) are, convert them to equations, then solve the equations. Always be sure to test your answers to see if they make sense. Feel free to post questions if you're stuck or want to have your work checked. As with anything, with practice you'll get better at doing algebra, especially word problems.
