    Creating an Expression?

    Vanessa and Vinny use two different containers to carry water to a pool.

    • Vanessa makes A trips to the pool, and Vinny makes B trips to the pool.
    • Vanessa's container holds x gallons of water, and Vinny's container holds y gallons.


    Create an expression that represents the average number of gallons of water carried every trip

    Would the expression just be AX + BY?

    Ax+By would be the total number of gallons ... the question asked for the average number of gallons per trip.

    What operation would need to be performed to the total number of gallons to find the average number of gallons per trip?
