Erics 4 test grades are 85, 75, 97, 93 . What must she make on her 5th test to have an average of 87?

  • MATH -

    (85 + 75 + 97 + 93 + x)/5 = 87
    350 + x = 435
    x = 85

  • MATH -

    how did you get 435?

  • MATH -

    to get rid of the denominator ( 5 ), multiply both sides of the equation by 5/

    so, 5 cancels out of the left side and
    5 * 87 = 435 on the right side

  • MATH -

    Determine the values of x for which x-5/3x+6 is undefined
