mikala wrote the equation x+7=44 to represent the situation.
kirk wrote the equation 44-x=7.
which equation is correct.
can you write another equation that represents the situations

Answer

Weight of the dog in question = 44 pounds Amount of weight the dog needs to reduce as per the veterinarian = 7 pounds Let us assume the new weight of the dog in question = x Then 44 - x = 7 This equation can also be represented as x + 7 = 44.
So from the above deductions we can say that 44 - x = 7 is the correct equation.
Another equation to represent the situation given in the question is x + 7 = 44
