you can start with 20 in the first day and that could go on until 3000 is reached.

Im sorry its given that there are only 15 days in the activity. However it is obvious that in the first day $20 are not added.

okay so think about this one: in 14 days you are potentially adding $280. 14 days since you said that 20 is not added on the first day. you have the sum of $3000 and you are expected to deduct $ 280 in mathematical expression that would be 20*(14) + x = 3000 use distributive property 280 + x = 3000 isolate x by subtracting 280 on both sides of the equation 280 - 280 + x = 3000 - 280 x = 3000 - 280 I think you get the idea now

so just to make it clear.. It would be x=2,720 then 2,720/15= 181.3 so would the first day be $181?
anonymous
  • anonymous
because of the 15 days given.. right?
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
(181.33 + 20) *14 + 181.33
