On a science test, 2 points are deducted from a total of 100 points for each question answered incorrectly. Trevor scored an 84 on the test. The equation 100 – 2x = 84, where x represents the number of questions answered incorrectly, represents the situation. How many questions did Trevor answer incorrectly?

Next time, you should post your questions here in the "Questions Section" !!!

 

100 - 2x = 84      subtract 100 from both sides

- 2x = 84 - 100

-2x = - 16            divide both sides by - 2

x = - 16 / -2

x = 8 - Questions that Trevor answered incorrectly.
