    Answer:

    [tex]5(r-1)[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given:

    Maria collected r rocks.

    Javier collected twice as many rocks as Maria.

    Pablo collected 5 less than Javier.

    Question asked:

    What equation is equivalent to number or rocks collected ?

    Solution:

    Maria collected number of rocks = [tex]r[/tex]

    Javier collected  number of rocks = [tex]2r[/tex]

    Pablo collected number of rocks = [tex]2r-5[/tex]

    The equation is equivalent to number or rocks collected will be:-

    [tex]=r+2r+2r-5\\ \\= 5r-5\\ \\ Taking\ 5\ as\ common\\ \\ =5(r-1)[/tex]

    Thus, the equation will be [tex]5(r-1)[/tex]
