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

- anonymous

If I find the value of x will that be the answer for part A? @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

yes, that would be for part A

- anonymous

What will be the answer? @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

did you try it yourself?

- anonymous

Is it 1.25?

- anonymous

nope , it's 1.8

- anonymous

okay what about part B? @pu

- anonymous

you multiply 120(1.5) and then divide by 100

- anonymous

ohhhh okay thanks but what about Part B now? @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

oh wait omg no leslie, your answer is correct I misread the question , im so sorry :/

- anonymous

Oh so its 1.25? @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

yep it's 1.25 sorry about that

- anonymous

No it's okay at least you tried your best do u know part B? @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

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

- anonymous

So the first answer will be September right? @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

yup

- anonymous

I don't get the 2nd one? @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

? what dont you get specifically

- anonymous

When you said to now find 40% of each total sale and compare @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

ohhh because in the question they said that they earned 40% of their costs, so that means they earned 40% of their sales

- anonymous

Okay so how can u solve this? @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

40/100 multiplied by each total sale

- anonymous

Can you tell me the answer? I will give you a medal the multiple choice is $30 $75 $190 @Purplerainbowcherry

- anonymous

the answer is 30 :/
