# Thread: Need help with Algebra 2

1. ## Need help with Algebra 2

Ok I need help with my algebra 2...we're doing word problems right now and the big one that I'm stuck on is....

In 1902, 44 loaves of bread cost the same amount as 1 loaf of bread in 2006. If a loaf of bread in 2006 cost $1.72 more than in 1902, find the cost of a loaf of bread in 1902. Any help with this would be appreciated. My math teacher's gone for today so I'm stuck...and there's no other homework help, since there's none on fridays. I have to get all of my work done for school today cause if i dont' anything that's not submitted will be counted as zero...and i'll practically fail... I hope to hear from any one soon.

x = cost per loaf in 1902

44x = x + 1.72

Can you handle that?
