    Answer: Jamal can purchase 5 sour straws.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x represent the number of sour straws that Jamal can purchase.

    He buys nachos for $7.50, and he wants to purchase some sour straws for $1.50 each. This means that the total amount that he would pay if he purchased x sour straws is

    1.5x + 7.5

    Jamal has $15.00 to spend at the concessions stand. This means that the number of sour straws that Jamal can purchase with the money that he has is

    1.5x + 7.5 = 15

    1.5x = 15 – 7.5

    1.5x = 7.5

    x = 7.5/1.5

    x = 5
