Question

Translate and solve eight more than the difference of-5s and -6s is equal to the sum of 3 and 7

2 Answer

  • Answer:

    s=2

    Step-by-step explanation:

    -5s-(-6s)+8=3+7

    -5s+6s+8=10

    s+8=10

    s=10-8

    s=2

  • The word problem would be translated as s + 8 = 10.

    The solution is: s = 2

    First, let's translate the statement given to form an algebraic equation, then solve for the unknown variable.

    • The difference of -5s and -6s is translated as -5s - (-6s) = "s"
    • 8 more than the "difference of -5s and -6s" is: s + 8.
    • sum of 3 and 7 = 3 + 7 = 10.

    Therefore, the equation would be:

    s + 8 = 10

    • Solve for s by subtracting 8 from both sides

    s + 8 - 8 = 10 - 8

    s = 2

    Therefore, the word problem would be translated as s + 8 = 10.

    The solution is: s = 2
