Can you help me with my son's homework question:
Maria earned \$110, which is \$86 more than twice the amount Joan earned. How much did Joan earn?
a. \$12
b. \$18
c. \$24
d. \$30

I would like to know the 5th grade equation that represents the answer. I guess I'm not smarter than a 5th grader on this one. Thanks for your help.

well, TwiceJoaneared + 86 is 110
so twiceJoanearned must be 24 so joan earned....

Seems Like Joan earned \$12.
Thanks!

110-86=24
