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

7(x+10) = 112

I parsed the words as

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

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 :(
