John bought a new television and VCR. The TV was \$137.18 more than the VCR. Write an equation to find the total cost of the TV if the VCR costs \$109.75

This is simple addition. The VCR costs 109.75, and the TV costs 137.18 more, so you simply add the two numbers together. There is no equation involved, other than VCR+TV=x.

let T be the cost of the television and V be the cost of VCR

“The TV was \$137.18 more than the VCR” tells you:

T = V + 137.18

V = 109.75

T = 109.75 + 137.18

T = \$246.93

if VCR = \$109.75

let price of TV be x

x-\$109.75=\$137.18

x =\$137.18+\$109.75

x =\$246.93

therefore * the price of the TV is \$246.93

*(use the three dots instead of therefore)

Break it down as follows:

TV = VCR + \$137.18

VCR = \$109.75

TV = \$109.75 + \$137.18

Would be easier, if they wrote the equation out.

Im not good at these things, translating English into a forign language is hard.

VCR=\$109.75

Tv=x

109.75+137.18=\$246.93

\$109.75+137.18=T or T = \$109.75+\$137.18

T being the cost of the tv (variable)

Just do

\$137.18 + \$109.75
