Problem 1 :

The book fair had a sale where 6 books were $20.46. If you wanted to buy 7 books, how much money would you need ?

Solution :

Given : Cost of 6 books is $20.46

Then, the cost of 1 book is

= 20.46/6

= $3.41

The cost of 7 books is

= 7(3.41)

= $23.87

So, we need $23.87 to buy 7 books.

Problem 2 :

A video game store was getting rid of old games, selling them 3 for $56.28. If they sold 7 games, how much money would they have made ?

Solution :

Then, the cost of 1 old game is

= 56.28/3

= $18.76

The Cost of 7 old games is

So, if they sold 7 games, they would they have made $131.32.

Problem 3 :
