Kevin ran 4 miles more than Steve ran.The sum of
their distances is 26 miles.How far did Steve run?The domain of the solution
is {0,4,11,22} A.Define ur variable,write algebraic expressions 4 the distances each person ran,write & solve an equation,

a. Define your variable.: n = number of miles run by Steve

b. Write algebraic expressions for the distances each person ran.: n = number of miles run by Steve n + 4 = number of miles run by Kevin

c. Write an equation that can help you solve the problem.: n + (n + 4) = 26

d. Solve the equation.: n + (n + 4) = 26 n + n + 4 = 26 2n + 4 = 26 2n = 22 n = 11 number of miles run by Steve n + 4 = 11 + 4 = 15 number of miles run by Kevin

e. Check your answer.: n + (n + 4) = 26 n = 11 11 + (11 + 4) = 26 11 + (15) = 26 11 + 15 = 26 26 = 26 The identity indicates that the value n = 11 is correct.
