Ex: Omaha gets about 22 inches of precipitation less than Charleston. For the two cities together, the precipitation totals 82 inches. How much does Omaha get?
we know that O gets 22 in less than Charleston.
Therefore, 82-22= 60 inch.
The 60 inches is the highest amount that Charleston can get. Because Omaha could get zero inches of rain per year.
Charleston gets atleast 60 inches, while ohama can get no less than zero inches.
If you have any questions, please ask
So are you saying charleston gets 60 inches and omaha gets 0? Remember C gets 22 more than O and together is 82. O+C=total and C-22=O. C nor O is 82.
No, I am not...Sorry typed that up wrong ...let me rephrase
Charleston receives 52in
While OmahaOhoma Receives 30 in
52+30in=82 inches in total
I am sorry :(
While Omaha Receives 30 in

By the way i'm a fifth grader
That is fine. I am still more than willing to help you.
Sorry for all the replying it's almost like were texting. I forgot to tell you i got the answer before but by guessing. It would be helpful if you gave me a brief explanation. But thanks!
The total is 82
We cannot solve for both variables at once, therefore, we need to solve for just one.
C+ (c-22) = 82
C-22 is what is used to find for O, because O is c-22
add 22 to both sides of the equation
now we have
divide both sides by 2, because we are looking to find for C
Now we have C, and need to find for O
the original equation was C+O=82
plug in for C, which is 52
subtract 54 from both sides
Now we can plug it all in the original equation
Any more questions?
Just remember that
We could never solve for both variables at once, so find something to subsitute in so that we can solve for one variable in at a time.
anything with the same variable can be added together
Then that gives us 2c-22=82
I am trying to explain it on a fifth grade level. I am sorry for being confusing
Did that make sense?
