Step 1
Katrina has $120
Let x be the number of pairs of flip flops
She paid $60 for new suitcase and she spent on $10 pairs of flip flops
suitcase amount + 10(number of flip flops) should be less than or equal to 120
Step 2
60 + 10 x 120
now we solve for x
60 + 10 x 120
subtract 60 from both sides
10 x 60
divide both sides by 10
x 6
