No, Ms. Sue I did not.

Which part of this do you not understand?

Let x = the number of students who do not work full time.

x + 7x = 11,600
8x = 11,600
x = 1,450

• Algebra -

Try this:

Let the number of students who do not work be x
then the number of students who work = 11600-x

You said:
"There are seven times as many students who work full time as there are students who do not"
or
The number of students who work is 7 times the number of students who don't work ----> 11600 - x = 7x

or 7x + x = 11600

which is the equation that Ms Sue gave you
