**Student Instructions**

Today you will learn all about writing variable equations for different scenarios. Think of a scenario like a short math word problem. Remember, variables are letters that represent unknown numbers in an equation. For example, if 10 - d = 5, we would know that d = 5 because 10 - 5 = 5. Write equations using variables in this activity.
