Joan's needs to earn $180. He has $60 in the bank and he has a paper delivery job earning $10 per hour. For how many hours does he need to deliver papers before he raises the money he needs?
How did I work it out:
So 60 + 10 = 70 but if you x 10 by something and then plus the 60 it = 180
All you have to do is make the word problem in to a number problem.
And that makes it easy to find the answer.
My next step is to be a lot faster and more confident to do and say my answer.
