Q:
# One of the zookeepers solved to find Bernard’s speed when he is healthy using the equation:x – 41.5 = 13.5.The other zookeeper said that to solve for Bernard’s speed when he is healthy, they must use the equation: 41.5 + 13.5 = x.Which zookeeper is correct? Explain.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Both the zoo-keepers are correct.Step-by-step explanation:The first zoo keeper uses the equation: x - 41.5 = 13.5⇒ x = 13.5 + 14. 5 = 55Now, the second zoo- keeper uses the equation:41.5 + 13.5 = x ⇒ x = 55Both use x = 55.
