I need help understanding the question and to figure out how to solve it my brain just cant get the hang of math today.
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?
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. :)
So qhat woud the x in the formula represent?
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
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!
