**You are saving money for a school trip. You have saved $156. This is $62 less than the trip costs. How much money does the trip cost?**

The total cost of the trip would be **$218**.

You are saving money for a school trip. You have saved $156. This is $62 less than the trip costs.

Let *x* represent the total cost of the trip.

We have been given that we have already saved an amount of $156 for the trip and we still need $62.

We can represent this information in an equation as:

$x-62=156$

Let us solve for *x*.

$\begin{array}{c}x-62=156\\ x-62+62=156+62\left(\text{Adding 62 on both sides}\right)\\ x=218\end{array}$

Therefore, the total cost of the trip would be $218.

The total cost of the trip would be $218.
