1.) An amount of money is increased by $6 is $13.
x + 6 = 13
x = 7
2.)Two dollars less than an amount of money is $17.
x - 2 = 17
x = 19
3.)One third an amount of money is $8.
x/3 = 8
x = 24
I am having difficulty with problems of this type:
Write and solve an equation to find each amount of money:
1.) An amount of money is increased by $6 is $13.
2.)Two dollars less than an amount of money is $17.
3.)One third an amount of money is $8.
Thanks
