**Bill wants to save up to buy a new watch which costs $235.**

If he already has $75 and he saves $8 each week, how many weeks will it take him to have enough money to purchase the watch?

How many days will it take?

**Answer**

This can be solved by the equation $235= 8x + 75.

To begin subtract 75 from both sides to get 160=8x.

With this new equation, divide both sides by 8 to get 20=x or x=20.

Since x represents the number of weeks Bill is required to work for the bike, 20 is correct amount of weeks.
