    We know that $35 is for satellite TV, so we can subtract that from the total.

    48.50 – 35 = 13.50

    Now we divide what’s left of the total by the cost of a movie.

    13.50 ÷ 4.50 = 3

    3 movies were purchased.

    Hope I could help!

    4.5x + 35 = 48.5 \\ 4.5x = 13.5 \\ x = 3
    So 3 movies were purchased
