Good Morning,

Here's a thought... this was brought to my attention by someone at my table during our A4A session, yesterday.

The class was looking at story problems for the equation
3x - 4 = 30.

One story problem was...
You have a \$30 gift card @ Starbuck's and have spent \$4 already. How many more coffee's can you buy (assuming at \$3 a cfe).

Problem with this scenario is... once you start solving for x...
3x = \$34... it appears the story SHOULD read...
You have a \$30 gift card @ Starbuck's and have \$4 IN YOUR POCKET. How many more coffee's can you buy (assuming at \$3 a cfe).
