I've never been good at creating equations for word problems in Math, so I really need help! Thanks!

**Problem:**

Christine has already knit 19 centimeters of scarf, and can knit 1 centimeter each night. How many nights will Christine have to spend knitting in order to knit a total of 30 centimeters of scarf?

Here is the problem worded differently.

19 centimeters + how many = 30?

Remember, one night = 1 centimeter

Now we just count how many nights it will take to get from 19 to 30 centimeters.

SOLUTION = 11 nights

Hope that helps!
