Question

At the beginning of the season, MacDonald had to remove 555 orange trees from his farm. Each of the remaining trees produced 210210210 oranges for a total harvest of 417904179041790 oranges.

1. t=204
204 orange trees
Step-by-step explanation: 2. There are originally 204 trees in the beginning.

### What are equations?

• An equation is a formula in mathematics that expresses the equality of two expressions by connecting them with the equals sign =.
• A mathematical statement made up of two expressions joined by an equal sign is known as an equation.
• 3x – 5 = 16 is an example of an equation. We get the value of the variable x as x = 7 after solving this equation.
To find the initial number of trees:
• Let the number of trees be t.
• At the beginning of the season, Mac Donald had to remove 5 oranges.
• A number of trees left = t-5.
• The number of oranges remaining trees produced = 210.
• The total harvest of oranges = 41790.
According to the question, our equation will be:
• (t – 5)210 = 41900
• t – 5 = 417900/210
• t – 5 = 199
• t = 199 + 5
• t = 204
Therefore, there are originally 204 trees in the beginning.
