    $16 per month can be changed to 16m where m represents months.

    The $2 per Pilates class can be 2p where p represents Pilates classes.

    An equation of y = 16m + 2p can be set up, where y represents how much McKenna is charged total for gym membership ($52)

    52 = 16m + 2p

    We know that McKenna attended 12 Pilates classes, and we also know that McKenna attended 1 month, so we plug this in:

    52 = 16(1) + 2(12) (simplify)

    52 = 16 + 24 (add 24)

    52 = 40

    Since this is not equal, $52 is not the correct amount to be charged.

    No, it is not the correct amount to be charged.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    • Step 1: Given, the monthly gym membership = $16 and charges for Pilates class = $12. So charges for 12 classes = 2 × 12 = $24
    • Step 2: Calculate total charges for one month.

    Total charges = Gym membership + Pilates classes = 16 + 24 = $40

    ⇒ So the $52 is an incorrect amount.
