# Understanding inequalities and equations

To expand our knowledge in equations solving, we need to solve some verbal problems. With verbal problems we mean problems that we need to translate into an equation by ourselves.

Example

Leonard earns $60 a day. After a few days Leonard has earned$240. How many days has Leonard worked? We denote the number of days he has worked as x.

$\60x=\240$

$\frac{\60x}{60}=\frac{\240}{60}$

$x=4$
