# Maya spent her allowance on playing an arcade game a few times and riding the Ferris wheel more than once.Write about what additional information you would need to create a two-variable equation for the scenario. What kind of problem could you solve with your equation?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Sample Response: To write a two-variable equation, I would first need to know how much Maya’s allowance was. Then, I would need the cost of playing the arcade game and of riding the Ferris wheel. I could let the equation be cost of playing the arcade games plus cost of riding the Ferris wheel equals the total allowance. My variables would represent the number of times Maya played the arcade game and the number of times she rode the Ferris wheel. With this equation I could solve for how many times she rode the Ferris wheel given the number of times she played the arcade game.Hope this helps. :)
