Step-by-step explanation:

John has a total of 26 apples which is 3 times and 5 more than Peter’s apple . Find the number of apple Peter has.

Let Peter’s number of apples be x

This can be written as:

3x + 5 = 26

Collect like terms

3x = 26 – 5

3x = 21

x = 21/3

x = 7

Peter has 7 apples.

2. Answer: A streaming service cost problem

Step-by-step explanation:

Hi, since the x is the variable, that will be the unknown value for our problem.

We can state a Cost equation,

y= ax +b

Where the total cost (y) of a streaming service in a month was \$26.

The fixed fee per month of the streaming service (b) is \$5, and the additional cost per movie rented (a) is \$3.

How many movies (x) were rented in that month?

Feel free to ask for more if needed or if you did not understand something.
