### Tears' Growing Post For May 23rd !!!

b) Create an algebraic formula based upon the problem above.

FORMULA---------> 180+ 25c <---------- FORMULA

****I picked c as the variable to represent cards.****

***To get how many moths it would take Jack to be 12 years old, you first have to subtract 8 years from 12 years. So 12-8 = 4 years. Then you multiply 4 years to 12 months. So 12 x 4= 48 months.***{I drew this again in paint so that you guys can see it better}

**** I got 2 pizza as the answer because the chart shows that 4 people will have 12 slices of pizza and each pizza has 6 slices of pizza. So they need 2 pizza to get 12 slices of pizza. So each of them will have 3 slices of pizza.****

***I got 3 pizza as the answer because there were 4 people but if 2 more people shows up that makes up to 6 people. The chart shows that 6 people will have 18 slices of pizza and in each pizza there are 6 slices. So they need 3 pizza to get 18 slices of pizza. So each person would get 3 slices of pizza.***

Question #3: Answer the questions below based upon this information:

Kathy has $20 in her savings account. Each month she adds another $15 to her savings account. In order to calculate how much money she will have in one year Kathy has created this algebraic formula: 20 + 15n = Savings amount

a) Calculate how much money Kathy will have in one year

20+15n=

20+15(12)=

20+180= 200

ANSWER: Kathy will have $200 in one year.

** I got 12 in the brackets because there are 12 months in a year.**

b) Suppose Kathy counted wrong and she really has $25 in her account instead of $20. Change the algebraic formula to reflect this miscalculation.

25+15n=Savings amount

**Just for fun I tried to solve how much money she'll have in a year if she has $25 in her savings account. Look below:**

25+15n=

25+15(12)=

25+180=205

ANSWER: She'll have $205 in a year.
