A boa constrictor is 18 inches long at birth and grows 8 inches per year. Write an equation that represents the length y (in feet) of a boa constrictor that is x years old
L = (8 x + 18) / 12 feet L = length in feet x = years
I tried to do this as my answer but it still came out wrong.
What do you mean by 'it came out wrong" ??
L = (8 x + 18) / 12
L = 2/3 x + 1.5 would be the sam answer.....did you try that?
