i need help on a couple of questions. I did all my other questions but i need a lot of help with the word problems...
1. The side length of a small square is s. A larger square has a perimeter of 124.8 cm. Its sides are 3.2 cm longer than those of the small square.
a) represent the situation with an equation of the form a(x + b) = c. Then determine the side length of the smaller square.
b.) verify your solution by using a model.
2. Valerie bought five packages of golf balls on sale for $29.50. Each package had a discount of $2.75. Write and solve an equation to determine the regular price of each package.
thanks :) and im sorry i reposted this

a. 4(x+3.2) = 124.8
Solve for x.
b. I cannot model.
c. 5(x2.75) = 29.50
Solve for x.
