jade wants to stop for coffee on her way to school. the distance from jade’s house to the coffee shop is 3 miles more than twice the distance from the coffee shop to jade’s school. the total distance from jade’s house to her school is 5 times the distance from the coffee shop to her school. what is the equation?

Answer: the equation to solve is x + (2x + 3) = 5xStepbystep explanation:The distance from jades house is 3 miles more than twice the distance from the coffee shop to jades school so if the distance from the coffee shop to jades school is x then it would be 2x + 3 because it’s 3 miles more than twice the distance. Since the distance from the coffee shop to her school is 5 times the x distance then that becomes 5x hence the equation. After solving you get x = 1.5 which you then substitute into 2x + 3 so 2(1.5) + 3 = 6So the answer is 6 miles.
