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

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?
