## ms.hi 3 years ago a customer went to a garden shop and bought some potting soil for \$12.50 and 6 shrubs. If the total bill was \$71.00, how much did each shrub cost if they all cost the same? Write and solve an equation. Show your work.

A costume designer made 10 costumes that each used 5.8 yards of fabric. If she had 238.2 yards of fabric to start with, about how much fabric does the costume designer have left? Write an equation and estimate the amount of fabric left.

\$71.00 is the total price we know the potting soil cost \$12.50 so we subtract that from the total price. which gives you \$58.50 now we know that is the total price for 6 shrubs so to work out how much one shrub is we divide this price by 6. \$58.50 / 6 = \$9.75 Dont forget to click good answer =)

the equation would look like this 71.00 = P + 6s where p is the potting soil and s is the shrubs
