Joelle had $24 to spend on seven pencils. After buying them she had $10. How much did each pencil cost?
Subtract the $10 left over from the $24 Joelle started with.
$24 - $10 = $14
Therefore, Joelle spent $14 on seven pencils.
Cost per pencil = Total Pencil Spend / Number of pencils
Cost per pencil = 14 / 7
Cost per pencil = $2
Subtract the $10 left over from the $24 Joelle started with.
$24 - $10 = $14
Therefore, Joelle spent $14 on seven pencils.
Cost per pencil = Total Pencil Spend / Number of pencils
