Jack has six less than five times the number of cards that mark has. mark has ten. ten times five equals fifty. fifty minus six equals fourtyfour.
jack has fourtyfour baseball cards.
( 10 x 5 ) - 6 = 44
hope this helps! 😀

First, transform the sentence into an equation, and let x be the missing number:

12 = 3x - (5x -6)
12 = 3x -5x + 6
12-6 = 3x - 5x
6 = -2x
x = -3

44

Step-by-step explanation-

Jack has 6 less than 5 times what mark has, if we write it out, we have (5*mark)-6. We know that mark has 10, so if we replace it we have

(5*10)-6 we get 50-6 which equals 44
