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?

19 + 1 * x = 30

 

x = 11

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!

Thanks, Mr. Owl, for the help. Thank you for making the problem sound so much less complicated. It makes a little more sense to me now.

 

Thank You!
