okay basically for part A , you take $1.50 to be 100% so 1.50 = 100% and x = 20% increase which mean x = 120 so cross multiply -> 1.5 (120) = 100x to get your value of x
yes, that would be for part A
did you try it yourself?
Is it 1.25?
nope , it's 1.8
you multiply 120(1.5) and then divide by 100
oh wait omg no leslie, your answer is correct I misread the question , im so sorry :/
yep it's 1.25 sorry about that
alright for Part B, in September , 900 flowers were sold at the price of $1.25 and in October, 700 flowers were sold at the price of $1.50 so multiply the number of flowers for each year with the price in each year : in September -> total sales were 900(1.25) = $1125 and in October -> total sales were 700(1.5)=$1050 and now find 40% of each total sale and compare
? what dont you get specifically
ohhh because in the question they said that they earned 40% of their costs, so that means they earned 40% of their sales
40/100 multiplied by each total sale
the answer is 30 :/
