Two - Step Equations

Journal Assignment Two-Step Equations

Name: Robert Mattei

T-mobile charges $34.99 a month for phone service. They also charge $0.48 per minute for long distance calls. If Joshua's bill was $64.75, how many minutes of long distance calls did she make?

Part A - Write an equation that can be used to solve the problem.

Equation: $34.99 • 0.48¢m - $64.75

Part B - Solve your equation and answer the question in a complete

sentence. $34.99

1) • 0.48


1,679.52 - $64.75 =

2) 1,679.52

- 64.75



She made about 1,614.77 minutes of her long distance of her cell phone.

Because first I created an equation of $34.99 • .48¢.

And it gave me 1,679.52. Then I did the next part of the Equation which was

1,614.77. So, probably it would be 1,614.77 minutes.

Summer - Onomatopoeia Poem

It's so hot you can play Baseball
You can SMACK it, and you can brag about it.
I can Hear the kids scream as they play at
the Playground, all around.
I touch the bat as I go to the Plate
Then BANG, I hit the bat and the bat CRACKED
in half.
I smell the hot steaming Hot Dogs when my father is
cooking them
I taste the hot steaming hot dogs and they were great
Then I SMACKED the ball again and I see it fly over the gate.
