Let's create a situation using words to solve the equation 20x + 3 = 103:

Imagine you have a collection of 103 candies, and you want to distribute them equally among your friends. However, you don't know how many friends you have yet (represented by the variable x).

Now, each of your friends will receive 20 candies from the total collection. In addition, there are 3 candies left over that you keep for yourself.

To find the number of friends (x) you have, you need to set up an equation. The equation will be: 20x + 3 = 103.

Here's how we solve it:

1. Subtract 3 from both sides of the equation to isolate the term with the variable:
20x + 3 - 3 = 103 - 3
20x = 100

2. Divide both sides by 20 to solve for x (the number of friends):
20x / 20 = 100 / 20
x = 5

So, you have 5 friends, and each of them will receive 20 candies from the total collection of 103 candies, leaving you with 3 candies.
