W.AL.T:Devise a strategy to solve a whole number problem.


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?

Answer: 60+10n=180

N= hours 

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.
