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 :

Given : Cost of 3 old games is \$56.28.

Then, the cost of 1 old game is

= 56.28/3

= \$18.76

The Cost of 7 old games is

= 7(18.76)

= \$131.32

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

Problem 3 :

At the store beef jerky is \$44.25 for 3 pounds. If you buy 4 pounds, how much will it cost?

Solution :

Given : Cost of 3 pounds is \$44.25

Then, the cost of 1 pound is

= 44.25/3

= \$14.75

The Cost of 4 pounds is

= 4(14.75)

= \$59

So, 4 pounds of beef jerky will cost \$59.

Problem 4 :

At the baseball stadium the price for popcorn is \$5.88 for 3 bags. If you want to buy 7 bags of popcorn, how much will it cost ?

Then, the cost of 1 bag is

= 5.88/3
