A sperm whale can stay under water 7 times as long as x minutes more than a platypus can. Write and equation that states the relationship of the minutes these two mammals can stay under water.

Sperm Whale- 112
Platypus-10

My answer: 7x+10 x=112

Is my answer correct?

  1. Steve

    7(x+10) = 112

  2. Steve

    I parsed the words as

    7 times as long as (x minutes more than a platypus)

  3. Bob

    Sorry for the last comment,just trolling (Didn't think they will allow me to post :o). But 112 is the min. he can stay under water, so 10*7x=112?

  4. Bob

    How is it 7(x+10) = 112 @Steve

    Sorry,I don't get it :(
