1. Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

Number of packets at the beginning of the day, Nb = 36 packets

Number of packets at the end of the day, Ne = 8 packets

A.

Number of packets sold, Ns = Nb – Ne

36 – Number of packets sold, Ns = Ne

8 = 36 – Ns

Ns = 28

B.

8 = 36 – Ns

8 = 36 – 28

Step-by-step explanation:

Total number of packages of juice boxes = Sold ones + left ones

36 = Total number of packages of juice boxe

8 = Total left packages at the end of the day

Part A:

=> 36 – 8 = 28 This is how many packages were sold

Par B:

36 = 28 + 8 This is a possible equation, it contains two terms (28, 8)
