With 4 days left in the mountain bug collecting contest, Mindy has caught 15 fewer bugs than Linda. If Mindy is to win the contest by collecting more bugs than Linda, at least how many bugs per day must Mindy catch?

So Mindy needs at least 15 bugs in 4 days, and so in order to win (assuming Linda does not catch anymore) Mindy would need to catch 16 (1 more than Linda's total as of now). So you could use 4x = 16, and so the answer would be 4.

right, but with algebra teachers like to see an actual equation. So, that is why I explained it as such.

Oh yes ofcourse Chelsea. You are correct.
