# Rudy can hold 95 gummy bears in his mouth. He already has 34 gummy bears in his mouth. What equality would show the number of gummy bears,  b, that can still fit in his mouth?

The amount he has in his mouth plus the amount he can still fit is equal to the max he can hold in his mouth.

#### Explanation:

This means that:

$b + 34 = 95$

Then if you minus $34$ from both sides:

$b + 34 - 34 = 95 - 34$

$b = 61$

Rudy can still fit $61$ gummy bears into his mouth.
