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]
