so I bought an apple for "some price" and let you know about it now if I go back to the same market and buy 60 apples, how much would they cost me?

just write down a+a+....+a 60 times of course, people invented multiplication to make that simpler.

\(\bf 1\ apple = \square_{cents} \qquad \qquad 60\ apples = \square?_{cents}\)

lemme put it this way then if I buy 1 apple for "some price" and let you know about it then how much would it cost me for 2 apples?
anonymous
  • anonymous
1 apple=a 60 apples=60a sooo 60a=1a???
jdoe0001
  • jdoe0001
well 1a \(\bf \ne\) 60a but one can say that if you pay "some price" for 1, for 60 you'd pay 60 times that amount
anonymous
  • anonymous
i just put (a)(60) and got it right haha
anonymous
  • anonymous

@kcarfa1 hopefully you mom doesn't send you to the market for grocery shopping, because if she sends you for say 20 avocados, you may end up shortchanging her =)

Im pretty sure everyone was thrown off by that question it was the matter of writing it out properly.
