Jayda takes her dog rolo to obedience training once each week. jayda bought a box of 96 dog treats and split them evenly into b bags. each bag contains 16 treats. write an equation to describe this situation. how many bags of dog treats does jayda have?
So there is 6 bags with 16 treats in it.
Since there are 96 treats that need to be split into b bags, we use division. So, we would write:
It turns out that each bag has 16, so:
96/b = 16
If you want to find what b is, you can multiply by b to both sides and then divide by 16 on both sides to get:
b = 6
