At a park, 96 brown-bag lunches were given out in thirty minutes. If 29 bags remain and x represents the starting number of brown-bag lunches, which equation could be used to determine the value of x?
x - 96 = 29
Note that it doesn't matter how long it took to hand them out. Just extra data to confuse you. Always see what the question is before trying to use all the data.
