Question

You play video games online. When you sign up with the game site, you get 200 points. You earn 20 more points for each hour that you play. How many hours do you have to play to get to 500 points?

10 hours
25 hours
15 hours
35 hours

2 Answer

  • 500 = 200 + 20h is our equation.
    Subtract 200 from both sides
    300 = 20h
    Divide by 20
    300/20 = 15.
    It will take 15 hours to get 500 points.
    Hope this helps!
  • Well we are starting off with 200 just for signing up. So now we subtract the 200 from 500 because we want the total amount of hours. Now 500 divided by 20 will get you 15 hours of time. So your answer is 15 hours. Hope this helped
