Question

Jada and Priya are trying to solve the equation 23+x=4. Jada says, “I think we should multiply each side by 32 because that is the reciprocal of 23.” Priya says, “I think we should add -23 to each side because that is the opposite of 23.” Which person’s strategy should they use? Why? Write an equation that can be solved using the other person’s strategy.

Therefore,

Priya’s way is correct to  solve the equation.

Other person Strategyis Equation is

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

Jada and Priya are trying to solve the equation,

For Jada way of calculation :

I think we should multiply each side by 32 because that is the reciprocal of 23.

Also Reciprocal of 23 is

We have

Which is INCORRECT

For Priya way of calculation :

I think we should add -23 to each side because that is the opposite of 23.

We have

plus minus= minus , (+ – = – )

23 will get cancelled and she will get “x”

Which is CORRECT

Hence Priya’s way is correct to  solve the equation.

The other Person strategy to solve will be:

I think we should subtract 23 to each side because that is the opposite of 23.

We have

Which is also CORRECT.

Therefore,

Priya’s way is correct to  solve the equation.
