    Answer: x= 7

    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.

    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.
