Each morning, Jon rides 1.5 miles to school and then rides to his aunt’s house after school. Later in the evening, he takes the same route to get back to his house. Over 5 days, he rides 44 miles. Which equation can be used to find x, the distance from school to his aunt’s house? a. 5+{2(1.5+x)}=44b. 2(1.5+x)=44c. 5(1.5+x)=44d. 5x{2(1.5+x)}=44

Accepted Solution

Hello There!

Think of it like this:
The distance to his aunt's house is unknown
5 lots of 1.5 and an unknown is 44
The only equation that'd suit that is B. 2(1.5+x)=44

Hope This Helps You!
Good Luck :)
