Sharon has some almonds. After buying another 350 grams of almonds, she now has 1,230 grams of almonds. How many grams of almonds did Sharon have at first? Use an algebraic equation or algebraic inequality to solve.
If she got another
Sharon has 850 grams of almonds at first.
In order to find out her beginning total, you have to subtract the end total from what she has gained. 1,230-350=850, which is the amount of almonds Sharon had originally.
@serena-d-2, the answer is correct, but here's a complete form of presentation.
Let the number of grams of almonds Sharon had at first be
If after buying another 350 grams of almonds, Sharon has 1,230 grams of almonds, then the mathematical representation would be
Therefore, to find
Therefore, Sharon had 880 grams of almonds at first.
Hope this helps!
