Unfortunately, his only talent is…disco dancing. [Darlo starts disco dancing]
Darlo boogies away to the tune “Disco Love” three times…
…then dances for six minutes of “Dance Fever.” [Darlo dancing under spotlights]
If Darlo dances for a total of ten minutes before getting annihilated by McKenzie’s
…can you determine how long the song “Disco Love” is?
First we’ll need to find the variable. [McKenzie finds the variable hiding behind the sofa]
Since we want to solve for Disco Love’s length, we’ll make that our “x”.
Darlo dances “Disco Love” three times, so we’ll call the total time it took him
to dance that song… 3x.
Now we’ll add the six minutes he grooves to “Dance Fever.”
Darlo dances for a total of 10 minutes.
So… 3x + 6 = 10
To get all the x’s on one side, we can subtract 6 from both sides to get 3x equals 4.
Remember to make the same move on both sides of that equal sign to maintain equality. [Darlo appears doing a dance move on both sides of the equation]
To solve for x, we then divide both sides by 3.
3x divided by 3 equals x... so there you have it!
x equals four-thirds.
Or, expressed as a mixed number… [Darlo holds his hands up and looks unsure]
1 and 1/3 minutes.
To find 1/3 of a minute, we multiply 1/3 by 60, the number of seconds in a minute…
…or divide 60 by 3, to get 20. [Clock spinning round]
Which means that “Disco Love” is one minute and twenty seconds, uh… too long.
Darlo, next time you fall for a girl, make sure her boyfriend isn’t on the football [Darlo is chased by various sports teams]
Or the basketball team.
Or the soccer team…
