First, find out the price they will be selling the flowers at.

would it be.70?

Yes! :) Now, the whole equation needs to equal 500. So, Profit - cost of roses = 500

What would x represent?

would the number of flowers they need to sell be 2500?

o ok

So qhat woud the x in the formula represent?

profit

Sorry, my earlier formula was wrong: Money received - cost of buying = profit

You already have the profit given, which is 500

so money received would be x

Well, x which actually be the amount of flowers, since that's the only variable you don't know.

Money received would be 70c per flower, right? and cost would be 50c per flower.

All of that needs to equal $500. So how would you make that into a formula?

so you would get a profit of .20c per flower and if you dived that into 500 you get 2500 right

Yep!

So .2x = 500. There's your formula!

thank you so much

Yep! No problem! If I helped, please consider giving me a medal. :)

Oh, thank you!
