Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would love to get help or a formula to help figure out my son's word problem he arrived with this afternoon for Homework on his first day back to school here in Georgia.

The problems is:

Tim ate 100 cookies in 5 days. Each day he ate 6 more than he did the day before.

How many cookies did he eat on the 1st day?

Please help me help my son solve this problem.

Thanks,

Pat
