Q:

The most points Sidney has scored in a basketball game is 28. She is trying to tie that record in her current game. Write an equation for the number of points Sidney needs to score to tie her record, rrr, if she has already scored ppp points.

Accepted Solution

A:
To find out how many more points Sidney needs to score to tie her record, r, you can use the equation r = 28 − p.  For example, when p = 10, you can subtract r = 28 − 10So, when p = 10, then r = 18.
