P.S. is this flvs? Grade 7 Math

- anonymous

so is it $1.50 in october for a flower

- anonymous

if there was a 20% increase in october, then find 80% of $1.50, which is $1.20.

- anonymous

so it would cost $1.20 in september, and $1.50 in october

- anonymous

do 900*1.20

- anonymous

to get 1080. 40% of 1080 is 432

- anonymous

so they earned $432 in september

- Angiedoesschool2275

Yes, how did you know! lol I'm taking a test right now, but I don't get your explanation?

- anonymous

somewhere

- Angiedoesschool2275

It's on the practice test of module 4

- anonymous

I know, I took that

- anonymous

P.S do you have the same teacher?

- Angiedoesschool2275

No, I have Mrs. Walker

- anonymous

okay:)

- anonymous

anyways, I'll explain

- anonymous

so, if the price increased from something to $1.50 by 20%, then you would have to work backwards to find the price

- anonymous

so do 100-20 to get 80%

- Angiedoesschool2275

The answer choices I have is either September or October and the by choices are 30,75,190 so it couldnt be 400

- anonymous

so 80% of 1.50 is 1.20

- Angiedoesschool2275

I got 1.25 for that

- anonymous

I know, but wait, we need to find October's money earned

- anonymous

I forgot, what is the other class?

- anonymous

can you take a screenshot

- Angiedoesschool2275

##### 1 Attachment

- anonymous

never mind, I get it

- anonymous

find the price of october

- anonymous

by doing $1.20*700

- anonymous

then, 40% of what you get

- anonymous

so 40% of 840

- anonymous

which is 336

- Angiedoesschool2275

So what is the answer?

- anonymous

AAAH, forgot what I said

- anonymous

i will check my flvs account

- Angiedoesschool2275

.-. okay

- anonymous

how did you get $1.25

- anonymous

for Part A

- Angiedoesschool2275

I asked that question before to somebody else and they gave me the answer, 1.25

- anonymous

okay, so if it is 1.25

- anonymous

then do 1.25 times 900

- anonymous

then do 40% of that

- anonymous

then do 1.50*700

- anonymous

and 40% of that

- anonymous

you should get 450 and 420

- anonymous

so then subtract 450-420

- Angiedoesschool2275

Did September or October earn more money?

- anonymous

september

- Angiedoesschool2275

Thank you very much! You helped me so much ;D

- anonymous

I am still not sure if 1.25 is right though

- anonymous

but if you got it from someone else, then i think it is more reliable than my answer for part a

- Angiedoesschool2275

Yes it was right, I got all my answers right! Thank you very much! Math is my worst subject.

- anonymous

i did this too and all of that is right
