Hello everyone. I have a math problem I am somewhat stuck on and need help a little please.
Write a problem that can be solved using the equation: 9x + 14 = 100
A. 9 dogs and 14 cats cost $100.00
B. Ty wants to buy 14 dogs, but they cost $100, how much more does he need?
C. Ty has saved $14 and he earns $9 each week. How many weeks will it take till he has $100?
I am not sure on this one.

Hello Ms. Sue. May I ask why is it C? What is the best way to do these type of problems?

Ms. Sue
Let's look at that equation.
9x + 14 = 100
9 times something plus 14 is 100
A is 9 times something plus 14 times something  nope that isn't it.
B is 14 times something but it doesn't give enough information.
C describes the equation correctly.
