There were 3 times as many adults as students attending a school play. If the attendance was 480, how many adults and how many students attended the play?
Let x equal the number of students attending the school play and solve this equation.
3x + x = 480
First, you need to combine like terms.
Then, divide each side by 4.
4's on the left side cancel out, leaving:
There are no like terms!!!!!!!!!😡
