Mr. Vazquez determines that the area of a bathroom in his house is 25 square feet less than 1/5 of the area of the living room. If the bathroom measures 35 square feet, what is the area of the living room?

Let the area of the living room  =  A

 

So

 

35  =  (1/5)A - 25          add 25 to both sides

 

60  =  (1/5)A        multiply both sides by 5

 

5 * 60  = A  =  300 sq ft
