Question

1) A local zoo has two large snakes. The anaconda is currently 5.23 meters long and grows
1.27 meters every month. The python is 4.76 meters long and grows 2.04 meters per month.
How many months ( ) m does the zookeeper need to wait for the two snakes to be the
same length?
a. Write the question or problem statement for the situation.
____________________________________________________________________b. Write the general form of the equation.

Step-by-step explanation:
a.  We want to see when the two snakes will be the same length.
b.   b1 + r1m= b2 + r2m  where b is the initial length and m is the number of months and r is the  growth rate
c.   for the anaconda  5.23 + 1.27 m  where m is the number of months,  and the total length is in meters
The anaconda starts at 5.23 meters and grows 1.27 meters each month for m months
d.  for the python 4.76 + 2.04m   where m is the number of months, l is the length of the python in meters
The python starts at 4.76 meters and grows 2.04 meters each month for m months
e.  5.23 + 1.27 m  = 4.76 + 2.04m   m is the number of months  Each side is the number of meters
