Q:
# Kate had 50 tickets to use for rides at the fair. She lost some of them. Her dad doubled the tickets she had left. Kate wrote the expression 2(50−t) to find the number of tickets she has now, where t is the number of tickets she lost. Jack correctly wrote another expression, 100−2t , to find the number of tickets Kate has now. Use the drop-down menus to explain what each part of Kate's and Jack's expressions mean. Kate's Expression: 2(50−t)2:50: t: 50−t:Jack's Expression: 100−2t100:t:2t:100−2t: thats what I need answered

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Kate's Expression: 2(50−t)2: doubling of tickets remained.50: total tickets in the beginningt : the number of tickets Kate had lost50-t: the number of tickets she had left after that Jack's expression: 100−2t100: twice the tickets in the beginningt: the number of tickets Kate had lost2t: twice the tickets lost100−2t:the number of tickets Kate has nowStep-by-step explanation:Le 't' be the number of tickets Kate had lost. Total tickets in the beginning =50Then the number of tickets she had left after that = 50-tAfter her dad doubled the tickets , the total tickets she has now =2(50-t)Here 2 represents the doubling of tickets remained.Jack just use distributive property to it and multiply 2 to 50 and t individually.He got the number of tickets Kate has now = 100-2t
