    Answer:

    c. 5x – 3 = 125

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Mrs. Jones deducts $3 from each of her 5 children’s allowances this week because they didn’t finish their chores. They then received a total of $125 in allowance. a. 5(x – 3) = 125

    b. 5x – 15 = 125

    c. 5x – 3 = 125

    d. 5x = 140

    Solution:

    Let x represent the allowance for each of Mrs. Jones children. Since she deducts $3 from each children because they didn’t finish their chores, the allowance for each child becomes x – 3.

    There are 5 children, hence the allowance for the 5 children would be:

    5(x-3)

    Since they received a total of $125 in allowance, hence:

    5(x-3) = 125

    5x – 15 = 125

    5x = 125 + 15

    5x = 140

    Option c is wrong
