Stacy and Travis are rock climbing. Stacys rope is 4 feet shorter than 3 times the length of Travis rope. Stacys rope is 23 feet long. Write and solve an equation to find the length t of Travis rope. Let Stacy's rope be s. Travis's rope be t. We have: s = 3t - 4 s = 23 So 3t - 4 = 23 Paste this equation into our search engine to get t = 9.
