Turner agrees to buy a boat for $2,800 down and $129 a month for 48 months. What is the total cost of the boat?
$8,992
This would be 129x48=6192+2800=8992
Right?

Right idea except that your equation doesnot make sense. The LHS does not equal the RHS. Better as two lines or
Total cost = $2800+(48x$129)
= $8992
Tip  Try to avoid more than one equals per line as you can end up with the RHS not being equal to the LHS.
