(b) Breanna predicts that she may only be able to bike 25 mi. She still wants to earn $450 for her favorite charity. How much money should she ask her sponsor to give her per mile in order to reach her goal? Equation: Solution:

  • noseboy908
Is the equation then asking "How much should she ask for per mile to get $450 by only 25 miles?
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
it is asking how many miles she need to ride to get $450 at $15 a mile

Ok, then let's find that first. Do you have any idea how we'd set up an equation to solve for that?
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
450/15?
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
Yeah, solve that.
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
as the Equation?
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
wich would be 30 but how would i do the soulution?
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
Well, the important thing is to determine /what/ exactly the question is asking. Does it want to know how many miles she'd have to bike to make at least $450 at $15/mi?
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
yea i think
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
My mistake, I misread it. You're correct. So let's create an equation for the problem.
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
the equation would be 450/15=30? right???
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
That's how you would solve for the equation. Just work backwards a little. Try to incorporate a variable, x, into it.
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
450/15=x?
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
Almost there! Now, work backwards just one more step! Isolate $450 please.
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
15/450=X i dont know??? how??
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
Don't worry, just one step at a time. So you know that as an end result, you want the variable and the $15/mi to end up totaling $450, so we set that up on it's own, as (something) = $450. Now, let's add what we know. We're also told that they're willing to donate $15 PER mile, so what is the only unknown thing so far?
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
how may miles
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
Yes! So let's set that as x. Thus we have our formula: (Price per mile) (quantity of miles) = (Total money made). Fill in what you can, please. Use x as the variable for what you don't know.
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
15*X=450??
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
Perfect! Now, there's your first answer! That's your equation. Now, earlier you were eager to solve that equation for x, so go ahead and do that, please.
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
450/15=30
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
Excellent! That's part A's equation and solution. Now, on to part B!
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
What, pray tell, does part B ask of us?
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
25*X=450? she thinks she can only ride 25miles so she want to know how much her charity would have to pay her per mile if she rode 25 miles
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
wich would be 18
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
per mile they would have to pay her
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
Excellent work.
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
That is, then, the equation and solution for part B.
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
thanks so much so last question
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
Fire away!
FUZZYBALL
  • FUZZYBALL
so how would i do the soultution is numbers
noseboy908
  • noseboy908
The solution for A, assuming your teacher wants it in this form, would be x = 30 miles. For B, it'd be x = $18.00. Now, they may want you to elaborate too, so you'd have to verify how they want the solution presented to be sure.
