Q:

Angelique had 20 tokens to use for games at the arcade. She lost some of them. Her dad tripled the tokens she had left. Angelique wrote the expression 3(20−t) to find the number of tokens she has now, where t is the number of tokens she lost. Dante correctly wrote another expression, 60−3t, to find the number of tokens Angelique has now. Use the drop-down menus to explain what each part of Angelique's and Dante's expressions mean.

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:  Both the expressions are exactly same . Both are representing the number of tokens she has now.
Step-by-step explanation:Given: The total number of tokens Angelique has= 20Since, she lost some of them, let the number of lost tokens be t.Then, The remaining  tokens she has = 20-tThen her father triples the tokens she has.now, the number of token she has=[tex]3(20-t)[/tex]....>Angelique's expressionBy using distributive property, The number of token she has=[tex]3\times20-3t[/tex]⇒The number of token she has=[tex]60-3t[/tex]...> Dante's expressionsHence, both are the same expressions. Both are representing the number of tokens she has now.
