Q:

# Which statement is modeled by the expression? 100p One hundred more players signed up for soccer than the league had planned for. The league had p uniforms in stock. The number of uniforms the league needs to buy to make up the difference is 100p . Each player in the league was given 100 tickets to sell. If there are p players in the league, the total number of tickets to sell is 100p After the league had supplied each player with a uniform, there were 100 uniforms left over. If there are p players in the league, 100p is the number of uniforms the league had originally. The coach received 100 tokens for the amusement park rides. If there are p players on the team, each player will receive 100p tokens.

Accepted Solution

A:
We have the expression 100*p. This means that there is 100 of something for every p (player) due to that we multiply each p by 100. We don't know what p is, so if it states, for example, that there is 100 of something in total, that would mean that 100/100=1 and p would have to be 1, which isn't correct. In addition, be realistic - for example, there wouldn't be 100 tickets for every player to a park if everyone needed one ticket to get in.

I won't give you the answer, but the explanation should give you a pretty good idea of what it is - good luck, and feel free to ask with any questions!
