  15. I can see how some people think it is 60. But if you earn 2 advantage points every time you see a movie then you would divide 60 by 2.

    If you think the answer is 60 then your wrong. It is 30.

  18. Ok correct me if I'm wrong, but y=2m+40 and y=number of points needed
    100=2m+40 60=2m m=30. Were did ya'll get 60 from? please explain. If you did get 30 or 60 the reason for this website is to explain answers to your peers. How do we know to trust you? How do we learn how to do it, so that we can one day teach someone else? We can't, so if you want to make an argument on either it's 30 or 60 then support your claim with evidence. Thanks and stay safe out on the web!

  19. you guys it's 30. just think, 30x2=60, 60+40=100. that's not the equation you should use but it just shows the logic of the answer being 30

  21. Just do 100 -40=60
    60 divided by 2 = 30
    So you would need to watch 30 movies

  22. 40+2m = 100
    2m=100−40 (subtract both sides from 40, 100 - 40 = 60)
    2m=60 (now you DIVIDE both sides by 2)
    m= 60/2

    m=30, so the answer is 30 :)
