**1.**Ms. Enigma said, “Five less **let x = Ms. Enigma’s age.**

than one third of my age is

14 is my age” How old is Ms.

Enigma?

The first thing that we do is make a sentence answer…..*Ms. Enigma is ______________ years old.*1/3x - 5= 14

To get ride of our integer we have 5to do some

Opposite operations.

1/3x – 5 = 14

1/3x +5 = 14

Now what we do to one side we do to the other.

14 + 5 = 19

x/3 is the same as saying 1/3

x/3 = 3(19)

3 times 19 = x = 57 Ms. Enigma is 57 years old

*Our last step is to substitute to check*1/3x – 5 = 14

57/3 – 5 = 14

14 = 14

**2.**Suppose you have 5o dollars

**let x = the number of hours**

And earn 8 dollars per hour.

**You must work**

How many hours must you

Work until you have 170 dollars?

Now we make a one sentence answer……

You must work _______________ hours.

Hour 1= x _____________ = x = 15

Dollars per hour = 8x____ = 8(15) =

TOTAL= 8x + 50 170 dollars

- 50 ___-50___________

------------

X= 15 8x = x 120

_____ _____ = 15 h

8 8

The last step is to substitute to check

8x + 50 = 170 dollars

8(15) + 50 = 170 dollars **170 = 170**
