Formulating equtions 2002-09-14
From Theresa:
Hello. In math class we have to formulate equations for certin questions for extra credit. We are allowed to ask anyone and anyone can do it for us and explain it to us. Could you please do that? Here are the questions
  1. Jordan has 3 times as much money as Reva. Together they have $44. How much money does each have?

  2. The Tigers played 48 games. They won twice as many as they lost. How many did they win?

  3. There are 900 students in Sewickley Academy. There are 20 more girls than boys. How many girls are there?

  4. A board 400 cm long is cut into 2 pieces. One piece is 66 cm longer than the other. Find the lenght of the shorter piece.
