Okay Iím trying to find 70, but I canít get it! Iím doing 400. ?/360= blah!
But I canít really get it! Iíve tried 400. 39.60/360 but what would I do, the steps to get 70??
the total score in the first four games was 88, since the average was 22 and they played 4 games, so it was an average of 22 points per game, which is where the 22 times 4 came from. but that isn't their total score anymore, they played a fifth game in which they scored x points. so we have to add that. now that they played 5 games, we divide by 5 to get the result. we are told ahead of time the result is 23, so we just equate the fraction to 23. now all that's left to do is solve for x
the objective is to find what x equals.how would i be able to calculate the fraction with out knowing what x equals?
are you asking me how to solve the equation?
.........................we have 5 dividing the expression that holds our variable, so we simply multiply both sides by 5
........now we have 88 being added to our variable, so let's subtract 88 from both sides
therefore, the team scored 27 points in their 5th game
