This week I learned how to translate word problems to equations. I found it pretty hard because some of the wording was confusing or I put it in the wrong order. I should do more problems to get the hang of it and to understand it more, and make it easier for me.
Step 1: Underline the key words ex: sum,product,minus, greater or equal to, less then and other important signs.
Step 2: Choose variables ex: x and y or other variables of your choice
Step 3: Then create your equation
After I created the equation I was able to figure out the y int and then graph it.
Here is my example and I underlined the key words that helped me to create the equation.
