Question

Waldo ate a total of 100 peanuts over a period of 5 days. Each day he ate six more peanuts than on the previous day.
How many peanuts did he eat on the first day?

## Answers ( )

Answer:1st day = x

2nd day = x+6

3rd = x+6+6

4th = x+6+6+6

5th = x+6+6+6+6

5x+60 = 100

5x = 40

x = 8 (1st day)

Explanation:He ate 8 peanuts on the first day.
