Hello!  Hope this helps :)

t=time it takes to make a coffee

n=number of coffee's they purchase

t=2n-3

We want to find the time it takes if a customer buys 5 coffees.  Plug 5 in for n:

t=(2*5)-3

t=10-3

t=7

The time it takes is 7 minutes.

Let me know if you have any questions.  Please give me a rating so I know how I'm doing.  Best of luck to you :)
