Magazine sales. Henry sold 120 magazine subscriptions in
x days.
a) Write a rational expression for the rate at which he sold
the subscriptions.
b) Suppose that he continues to sell at the same rate for
5 more days. Write a rational expression for the number
of magazines sold in those 5 days.

rate of magazines sold per day
= total number sold/number of days
= 120/x
so in 5 days wouldn't it be 5 times that?

Thanks so much so the problem would look like this
120x=x
and the second would look like this
120x=5*x
