Victoria has soccer three times a week, swimming four times a week, and piano twice a week.
She spends a total of 435 minutes each week doing these three activities a week. Write an
equation that represents this situation.


  1. Answer:
    3x + 4y + 2z = 435
    Step-by-step explanation:
    let x represent soccer
    hence playing soccer three times = 3 × x = 3x
    let y represent swimming
    hence swimming four times = 4 × y = 4y
    let z represent piano
    hence playing piano twice = 2 × z = 2z
    Victoria spends a total of 435mins doing these three activities every week,
    3x + 4y + 2z = 435
