You are baking macaroons for your class. There are 9 total students in your class and you have baked 17 macaroons. Write and solve an equation to find the additional number x of macaroons you need to bake in order to have 4 macaroons for each student. Write your equation so that the units on each side of the equation are macaroons per student.

 

Equation: ___=4

 

Number of macaroons: x=___

The number of macaroons you need total is 36. This is found by multiplying 9 and 4, which is 36. 36-17=19 (You need to make 19 more macaroons).

 

\({x +17 \over 9}=4\)

 

\(x+17=36\) Subtract 17 from both sides
 

\(x = 19\)

No Problem! I find it easier to do these problems when you know how many you are supposed to end with first. :)
