A group of students are traveling to Six Flags. One bus has 15 fewer than 2.5 times as many students as the other bus. Write an equation to find the total number of students.
So, I was wondering if
x = (n x 2.5)  15, is correct?

If the number on one bus is n, then the number on the other bus is (2.5n  15).
You need to consider the number from both buses to get the total.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
