Dan purchases dvd's from a website, each dvd costs 11 dollars, and the shipping and handling fee is 6.95, dan is charged a total of 50.95, how many dvds did he purchase?

A) Label a variable and write an equation:
11(x)+6.95=50.95
x is the number of DVD's purchased.

2) Solve your equation and answer the question:
11x+6.95=50.95
subracted 6.95 from 6.95 and the 50.95
and I got 11x=44
And then divided and got 4.
4 dvds, is this correct?
