There are x marbles, and each marble has the same weight.

The weight of each marble is 3. The weight of all the marbles is 3x.

So, if 3x + 8 is the weight of the bucket and marbles,

the 8 represents the weight of the empty bucket.

Also, the 8 is known as the constant. The weight of the empty bucket is going to remain the same, while the weight of the

marbles will depend on the number of marbles, x, put in the bucket.
