A:
Question is Incomplete,Complete Question is given below;"What if Tanisha needs 40 bowls for the picnic? Explain how to write an equation with a letter for an unknown factor to find the number of packs she should buy. Then find the unknown factor."The missing table is attached.Answer: The equation for unknown factor is [tex]6x=40[/tex]The unknown factor is 7 approximately.Step-by-step explanation:Given:Number of bowls required = 40Let the number of packs that Tanisha should buy be 'x'Now, based on the the table attached, that 1 pack has 6 bowls.We need to find the number of packs required for 40 bowls.Hence we can say that Number of bowl in each pack multiplied by Number of packs should be equal to number of bowl required to buy.Therefore, you can say that the product obtained  by multiplying "x" packs by 6 bowls must be 40 bowls.Framing in equation form we get;[tex]6x=40[/tex]hence the equation for unknown factor is [tex]6x=40[/tex]In order find the unknown factor, you can divide both sides of the equation by 6 using division property we get;[tex]\frac{6x}{6}=\frac{40}{6}  \\\\x= 6.67 \approx7 \ packs[/tex]Hence Tanisha should buy 7 packs for 40 bowls.
