I'm having a problem solving the following example. The teacher wants it in this format. 1st the Verbal Model, 2nd the Labels 3rd Algebraic Model 4th Solve and finally 5th part: Answer Question.
Example: You are working on a scouting badge. You need 60 points on 4 projects to earn the badge. On your first project, you earn 24 points. One the second project, you earn 14 points. On the third project, you earn 12 points. How many more points do you need on the fourth project to complete the badge?
I'm confused, Can you help?

24+14+12=
take that sum and subtract that from 60
