Jackie bought a 3-pack of tubes of glue. She used 0.27 ounce of the glue from the 3-pack
and had 1.35 ounces left in total. Which describes a way to determine the number of ounces
sold in each tube of glue?
Divide 1.35 by 3 and then subtract 0.27 from the quotient.
Solve for in the equation 3 (x – 0.27) = 1.35.
Solve for x in the equation 3x – 0.27 = 1.35.
Subtract 0.27 from 1.35 and the divide the difference by 3.
