Sergio has p paintings in his art collection. he and other local painting collectors agreed to donate a total of 48 paintings to the local museum. each of the 12 collectors will donate the same number of paintings.

Answers

P-4

Step-by-step explanation:

Sergio and the other painting collectors have decided to donate a total of 48 paintings all together.

We know that there are 12 collectors in total and they will each donate the same number of paintings.

48 paintings in total

12 collectors

48 / 12 = 4

We now know Sergio will donate 4 paintings from his collection of P paintings. Sergio will have P - 4 paintings left.

We do not know what "P" is equal to, so we cannot give an exact number for how many paintings he will have left. However, we know he will have 4 fewer paintings after donating.

hope it helped u

pls mark it brainliest!!

Since there are 48 paintings being donated by 12 collectors, then we can say that each collector will donate 4 paintings.


This means that Sergio will have 4 less paintings then he had before, which was represented by  p . Thus, our expression is now  \boxed{p - 4} .

Sergio has p paintings in his art collection. He and other local painting collectors agreed to donate a total of 48 paintings to the local museum. Each of the 12 collectors will donate the same number of paintings. How many paintings will Sergio have in his art collection after his donation? Write your answer as an expression.

The expression representing number of paintings Sergio will have in his art collection after his donation is p-4.

Step-by-step explanation:

Given:

Number of paintings Sergio has = 'p'

Number of collectors donating the painting = 12

Total Number of paintings donated = 48

We need to find Number of paintings will Sergio have in his art collection after his donation.

Solution:

First we will find the number of painting donated by each collector.

Now number of painting donated by each collector will be equal to Total number of paintings donated divided by Number of collectors donating the painting.

framing in equation form we get;

number of painting donated by each collector = \frac{48}{12}=4 \ paintings

Number of paintings will Sergio have in his art collection after his donation will be equal to number of paintings he has minus number of painting he donated.

framing in equation form we get;

Number of paintings will Sergio have in his art collection after his donation = p-4

Hence The expression representing number of paintings Sergio will have in his art collection after his donation is p-4.
