DeletedThe answer is: " 5 boxes " . ___________________________________________________________ Explanation: ___________________________________________________________ Given the formula: ___________________________________________________________ → " " ; in which: Z = number of boxes ; ← for which we shall solve ; F = number of favors each child will get = " 3 " {given} ; C = number of children at the party = " 25 " {given} ; N = number of party favors per box = " 15 " {given} ; ___________________________________________________________ → Plug these given values into the formula/equation ; to solve for: " Z " ; the number of boxes . ___________________________________________________________ → ; → ; The "3" cancels to a "1" ; and the "15" cancels to "5" ; → {since: " 3 ÷ 3 = 1 " ; and since: "15 ÷ 3 = 5 " } ; ____________________________________________________________ → And we can rewrite as: ; → Note: We change the: "(1 * 25) " (in the "numerator") ; to: " 25 " ; to simplify; since: "any value", multiplied by "1", results in that same value. → As such: "(1 * 25 = 25)" . ___________________________________________________________ And we can rewrite our equation as: → ; And can further reduce; → to solve for our answer, "Z", the "number of boxes"; as follows: → ; → [tex]Z = " 5 " . __________________________________________________________ → The answer is: " 5 boxes " . __________________________________________________________ Hope this explanation is helpful!
