Step-by-step explanation:
Algebraic Expression
Step 1 :- Make an equation
⇒ 7.96p + 32.24 = 80
Step 2:- Calculate for the value of variable
⇒ 7.96p + 32.24 = 80
Substract 32.24 from both sides
⇒7.96p + 32.24 – 32.24 = 80 – 32.24
Calculate
⇒7.96p = 47.76
Divide both sides by 7.96
⇒7.96p/7.96 = 47.76/7.96
Divide
⇒p = 6
Therefore, she bought 6 pounds of coffee
Have a wonderful and enjoyable day, 🙂
