Nancy has $12 in her checking account and plans on receiving another $20 from babysitting tonight. How much more money does she need to buy a book set that costs $55?

Let x represent the amount of money Nancy needs. Then the following equation can represent this problem: 12 + 20 + x = 55 We first add 12 and 20 together. 32 + x = 55 We then subtract 32 from both sides of the equation to find the value of x. 55 - 32 = x Answer: x = 23, so Nancy needs $23 to buuy the book set.
