Tag!

Tanner is planning a trip to his uncle's house out of town. It usually takes him hours to
drive to his uncle's house, but due to road construction, it will take him an additional $h\phantom{\rule{0.12em}{0ex}}$ hours
driving to complete the trip in 5 hours.
Write the equation and find the value of $h\phantom{\rule{0.12em}{0ex}}$ that will make the equation true

the equation I wrote is :

$2\frac{1}{2}+h\phantom{\rule{0.12em}{0ex}}=5$

is this correct,

thanks

"It usually takes him hours to
drive to his uncle's house,"

How many hours does it take usually.
This necessary information is missing.

If 2 and $\frac{1}{2}$ hour is this info, your equation is correct.

yes, $2\frac{1}{2}$ is what usually takes him to get there. so, it is correct, then. Thank you for your confirmation
