## Answers ( )

A. $25

The explanation would be because 365-105=206 and then double 105 which would be 210 and then subtract that from 206 which would be 50 then divide that by 2 and you would get 25

Let’s put that into an equation

Luggage bags will be represented in x

Since there’s 2 bags it will be 2x

The plane ticket cost $105. The hotel room cost TWO TIMES the amount of the plane ticket. So the hotel room would be 2(105)

Putting them together your equation would be:

365 = 105 + 2x + 2(105)

Now we solve from here:

2(105) = 210

210 + 105 = 315

Now we have:

365 = 315 + 2x

Isolate the variable so you have to Subtract 315 on both sides then you’ll have:

50 = 2x

Divide 2 on both sides:

25 = x

The cost of one luggage bag is $25.
