PLZZZ HELPPPPPPPP!!
The students at Midtown Middle school sold flowers as a fundraiser in September and October. In October, they charged $1.50 for each flower. The October price was a 20% increase of the September price.
Part A:
What was the price of the flowers in September?
Part B:
The seventhgrade class earned 40% of the selling price of each flower.
In September, they sold 900 flowers.
In October, they sold 700 flowers.
Did they earn more money in September or October?
How much more?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright 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
