Math (Translate each sentance into a equation)

posted by .

1. The difference between three times a number and 11 is 10.

Whould it be: 3x - 11 = 10?

2. One more than the difference between 18 and seven times a number is -9.

Would it be: 1 + 18 - 7x = -9?

3. 26 more than the product of a number and 17 is -42.

Would it be: 26 + x + 17 = -42?

4. Twelve less than the quotient of a number and 8 is -1.

Would it be: 12 - x/8 = -1?

    1. Correct.

    2.
    (18 - 7x) + 1 = -9

    3.
    17x + 26 = -42

    4. Incorrect.

    4. 12 - a + 8 = 1?

    4. Quotients are the answers to a division problem. Your first answer was on the right track, except that it didn't show 12 less than the quotient.

  • Math (Translate each sentance into a equation) -

    12 + x/8 = -1

    Since you'll later turn the + into a -

    OR

    x/8 - 12 = -1?

  • Math (Translate each sentance into a equation) -

    This is correct:

    x/8 - 12 = -1

  • Math (Translate each sentance into a equation) -

    Now how would you go by solving, x/8 - 12 = -1?

  • Math (Translate each sentance into a equation) -

    x/8 - 12 = -1

    Multiply both sides of the equation by 8.

    x - 96 = -8
    x = 96 - 8
    x = 88

    Proof:
    (88/8) - 12 = -1
    11 - 12 = -1
