I need to know how to set up and solve this equation
Hi Megan,
This problem is easier if you are able to translate the word problem into mathematical equivalents.
for example, "of" in math means multiplication
...there are other examples I can share with you
for this problem 32 is 4/6 of capacity.
"is" means =
"of" means multiplication.
so it might be helpful to set up the problem like this :
32 = 4/6(T) where I picked T to mean the capacity or total.
does this help? Are you able to solve for T?
