  • Q3
    Cameron and Carissa have a lemonade stand. On Saturday, they bought 120 lemons to make lemonade. Cameron used 15 lemons each hour for 3 hours, and Carissa used 20 lemons each hour for 2 hours. Which equation can be used to find x, the number of lemons they have left?
    120 - (3x15) + (2x20) = x
    (3x15) + (2x20) - 120 = x
    120 - (3+2) x (15+20) = x
    120 - (3x15) - (2x20) = x

  • Q4
    Lincoln bought 2 shirts that were originally priced at $28 each. Each shirt was on sale for $4 off the original price. Which equation can be used to find t, the total sale price of the 2 shirts?
    t = (2x28) - 4
    t = 28-4
    t = (2x28) - (2x4)
    t = (2x4) - (2x28)
