Sam is renting a boat. The cost to rent the boat is $120 plus $12 for each hour the boat is rented. If Sam paid $180, how many hours did she rent the boat for?

To solve this problem you would first write an equation. The equation would represent the $120 to rent the boat plus the $12 per hour, which would be the variable, and the total of this would be $180. The equation would look like this: 120+12x=180 After writing the equation, you would then solve for x by moving everything else to the other side of the equation. Start by subtraction 120 from each side to make your equation look like this: 12x=60 The next step would be to divide each side by 12. This would give us our final answer for how many hours the boat was rented for: x=5 Final Answer: Sam rented the boat for 5 hours
