This Discussion will help us learn to develop our own mathematical models, write down the equations and then solve the equations for unknown values using algebraic methods.

1. Refer back to Week One Discussion and use the names and ages of yourself and the other two people you selected. Make sure one is older than you and one is younger than you.
2. In years, how old was the older person when you were born?
3. Write an equation that models how old in years each of you will be, when your ages add up to 150 years old. For example, if x = your age and the eldest person was a year older than you, you would write their age as x + 1. Then the equation would be: x + (x+1) = 150.
4. Explain the reasoning which helped you develop your equation.
