You can use 5-D Process to help you write the equation. **A row of 4 columns, labeled from left to right, as follows: First Part. Second Part, = 5, times first. Third Part, = $35, + first. Total = $385.**

Use **Randomly placed numbers: 85, 150, 250, 65, 200, 10, 125, 45, 50, 30, 25, 40, 60, 75.**

Use the expressions shown in the table above and your trials in the table to write an equation. Solve your equation. Does your answer make sense? **Second row added to the table, labeled from left to right, as follows: x, 5x, 35 + x, blank.**
