I Make $1,050 a week by selling food baskets here at the market. I made $160 monday and $25 so far today, how much are my baskets?
Because $1050 is the total per week youll put that number on one side of the quation. then on the other side $160 because you have already made that. Then youll add $25 to your $160, lastly add your variable Now You have $160+$25x=1050
Now how do we find out howmuch my baskets are selling for?
First move like terms to the same side of the equal sign 25b=1050-160 Divide each side by 25, leaving the variable by its self and 890 divided by 25 equals 35.6
whats after that?
then subtract 60 from 1050 leaving you 890 25b=890
Divide each side by 25, leaving the variable by its self and 890 divided by 25 equals 35.6
Yes, You are correct, i sale my baskets for $35.60
