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?
I'm not even sure of that myself yet, since I haven't solved the formula. But the question asks you to find the formula, so lets focus on that first. :)
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.
o
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!
