P.S. is this flvs? Grade 7 Math
anonymous
  • anonymous
so is it $1.50 in october for a flower
anonymous
  • anonymous
if there was a 20% increase in october, then find 80% of $1.50, which is $1.20.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it would cost $1.20 in september, and $1.50 in october
anonymous
  • anonymous
do 900*1.20
anonymous
  • anonymous
to get 1080. 40% of 1080 is 432
anonymous
  • anonymous
so they earned $432 in september

  • Angiedoesschool2275
No, I have Mrs. Walker
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay:)
anonymous
  • anonymous
anyways, I'll explain
anonymous
  • 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
  • anonymous
so do 100-20 to get 80%

The answer choices I have is either September or October and the by choices are 30,75,190 so it couldnt be 400
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 80% of 1.50 is 1.20
Angiedoesschool2275
  • Angiedoesschool2275
I got 1.25 for that
anonymous
  • anonymous
I know, but wait, we need to find October's money earned
anonymous
  • anonymous

anonymous
  • anonymous
never mind, I get it
anonymous
  • anonymous
find the price of october
anonymous
  • anonymous
by doing $1.20*700
anonymous
  • anonymous
then, 40% of what you get
anonymous
  • anonymous
so 40% of 840
anonymous
  • anonymous
which is 336
Angiedoesschool2275
  • Angiedoesschool2275
So what is the answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
AAAH, forgot what I said
anonymous
  • anonymous
i will check my flvs account
Angiedoesschool2275
  • Angiedoesschool2275
.-. okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
how did you get $1.25
anonymous
  • anonymous
for Part A
Angiedoesschool2275
  • Angiedoesschool2275
I asked that question before to somebody else and they gave me the answer, 1.25
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, so if it is 1.25
anonymous
  • anonymous
then do 1.25 times 900
anonymous
  • anonymous
then do 40% of that
anonymous
  • anonymous
then do 1.50*700
anonymous
  • anonymous
and 40% of that
anonymous
  • anonymous
you should get 450 and 420
anonymous
  • anonymous
so then subtract 450-420

Did September or October earn more money?
anonymous
  • anonymous
september
Angiedoesschool2275
  • Angiedoesschool2275
Thank you very much! You helped me so much ;D
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am still not sure if 1.25 is right though
anonymous
  • anonymous
but if you got it from someone else, then i think it is more reliable than my answer for part a
Angiedoesschool2275
  • Angiedoesschool2275
Yes it was right, I got all my answers right! Thank you very much! Math is my worst subject.
