    yes, the 15 is the cost of the case. notice it is added or subtracted with 0.2b when you have "things" that are added or subtracted, each thing is called a term

    they say you get a discount of 0.2 dollars (20 cents) for each bottle. For example, if you bought 2 bottles you would get 0.40 off (2*0.20)

    if you bought 3 bottles you would get off 3*0.20 = 0.60 (60 cents off) the rule is if you have "b" bottles (b is some number) then the amount of discount is b times 0.20

  66. phi

    they tell you the expression to find the final cost of the case of juice is 15-0.2b it is the cost of the case minus the amount of discount
