Modeling Change with Equivalent Equations ax + b = c

Mix it up while representing changes in a drink recipe. Using a scenario about making a party drink, the video creates an equation. The process uses equivalent expressions on each side of the equation to build the final equation. By changing the final results, the equation is modified to determine a different starting point.
