Accepted Solution

A:

The equation 0.15n + 20 = 24.75 represents the present situation in a fundraiser in which you read for donationsSolution:Given, You are participating in a fundraiser in which you read for donations.
So far you have two donors. Your granny has agreed to donate $20 and your mom has agreed to donate $0.15 per minute. Together they donated $24.75, We have to find what equation represents this situation?
Now, we know that, total money = money donated by granny + money donated by mom
[tex]24.75 = 20 + number of minutes you read \times $ 0.15\\24.75 = 20 + n \times 0.15\\0.15n + 20 = 24.75[/tex]Hence, the equation 0.15n + 20 = 24.75 represents the present situation.
