2 tons of dirt cost $280.00. What is the price per pound?

2 tons of dirt cost $280.00. What is the price per pound?
We know that 1 ton = 2000 pounds.
So 2 tons = 2*2000 = 4,000 pounds
We rewrite this as 4,000 pounds of dirt cost $280.00.
We set up a proportion where p is the price per one pound:
4000/280 = 1/p

3 cases of fresh apples that cost $21.95 per case with 20% off and a 7.5% sales tax

3 cases of fresh apples that cost $21.95 per case with 20% off and a 7.5% sales tax
Figure out the total cost before the discount:
Total Cost before discount = Cases * Price per case
Total Cost before discount = 3 cases * $21.95 per case
Total Cost before discount = $65.85
Now, find the discounted value of the apples:
Discounted Apple Price = Total Cost before discount * (1 - discount percent)
Discounted ApplesPrice = $65.85 * (1 - 0.2) <-- 20% is the same as 0.2
Discounted ApplesPrice = $65.85 * 0.8
Discounted ApplesPrice = $52.68
Now, apply the sales tax to this discounted value to get the total bill:
Total Bill = Discounted Apple Price * (1 + tax rate)
Total Bill = $52.68 * (1 + .075) <-- 7.5% = 0.075
Total Bill = $52.68 * 1.075
Total Bill = [B]$56.63[/B]

[/LIST]
Given with assumptions:
[LIST=1]
[*]a + k = 508
[*]2a + 1.25k = 885.50 (since cost = price * quantity)

Substitute equation (1) into equation (2):
2(508 - k) + 1.25k = 885.50
Multiply through:
1016 - 2k + 1.25k = 885.50
1016 - 0.75k = 885.50

[/LIST]
24(6000 - y) + 40y = 188800
144,000 - 24y + 40y = 188,800
16y + 144,000 = 188,800
Subtract 144,000 from each side:
16y = 44,800
Divide each side by 16
y = 2,800 ($40 tickets)
Plug this into (2)
x + 2,800 = 6000
Subtract 2,800 from each side:
x = 3,200 ($24 tickets)

Let the number of tickets above 42 be t.
A few things to note on this question:
[LIST]
[*]The phrase [I]at least[/I] means greater than or equal to, so we have an inequality.
[*]Earnings = Price * Quantity

We want to solve this inequality for t:
Solve for [I]t[/I] in the inequality 189 + 4.5t ≥ 441
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 189 and 441. To do that, we subtract 189 from both sides
4.5t + 189 - 189 ≥ 441 - 189

A bicycle store costs $1500 per month to operate. The store pays an average of $60 per bike. The average selling price of each bicycle is $80. How many bicycles must the store sell each month to break even?
Profit = Revenue - Cost
Let the number of bikes be b.
Revenue = 80b
Cost = 60b + 1500
Break even is when profit equals 0, which means revenue equals cost. Set them equal to each other:

A bicycle store costs $2750 per month to operate. The store pays an average of $45 per bike. The average selling price of each bicycle is $95. How many bicycles must the store sell each month to break even?
Let the number of bikes be b.
Set up our cost function, where it costs $45 per bike to produce
C(b) = 45b
Set up our revenue function, where we earn $95 per sale for each bike:

Set up our profit function, which is how much we keep after a sale:
P(b) = R(b) - C(b)
P(b) = 95b - 45b
P(b) = 50b
The problem wants to know how many bikes we need to sell to break-even. Note: break-even means profit equals operating cost, which in this case, is $2,750. So we set our profit function of 50b equal to $2,750

C(b) = Variable Cost + Fixed Cost
C(b) = Cost per bike * b + operating cost
C(b) = 60b + 3600
Revenue function R(b) where b is the number of bikes:
R(b) = Sale price * b
R(b) = 100b
Break Even is when Cost equals Revenue, so we set C(b) = R(b):

A carnival charges a $15 admission price. Each game at the carnival costs $4. How many games would a person have to play to spend at least $40?
Let g be the number of games. The Spend function S(g) is:
S(g) = Cost per game * number of games + admission price
S(g) = 4g + 15
The problem asks for g when S(g) is at least 40. At least is an inequality using the >= sign:
4g + 15 >= 40
To solve this inequality for g, we type it in our search engine and we get:
g >= 6.25
Since you can't play a partial game, we round up and get:
[B]g >= 7[/B]

A car’s purchase price is $24,000. At the end of each year, the value of the car is three-quarters of the value at the beginning of the year. Write the first four terms of the sequence of the car’s value at the end of each year.
three-quarters means 3/4 or 0.75. So we have the following function P(y) where y is the number of years since purchase price:
P(y) = 24000 * 0.75^y
First four terms:
P(1) = 24000 * 0.75 = [B]18000[/B]

A music app charges $2 to download the app plus $1.29 per song downloaded. Write and solve a linear equation to find the total cost to download 30 songs.
Let the number of songs be s. And the cost function be C(s). We have:
C(s) = Price per song downloaded * s + app download charge
C(s) = 1.29s + 2
The problem asks for C(30):
C(3) = 1.29(30) + 2
C(3) = 38.7 +2
C(3) = $[B]40.7[/B]

A new car worth $30,000 is depreciating in value by $3,000 per year. After how many years will the cars value be $9,000
Step 1, the question asks for Book Value. Let y be the number of years since purchase.
We setup an equation B(y) which is the Book Value at time y.
B(y) = Sale Price - Depreciation Amount * y
We're given Sale price = $30,000, depreciation amount = 3,000, and B(y) = 9000
30000 - 3000y = 9000
To solve for y, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=30000-3000y%3D9000&pl=Solve']type this in our math engine[/URL] and we get:

To check our work, substitute y = 7 into B(y)
B(7) = 30000 - 3000(7)
B(7) = 30000 - 21000
B(7) = 9000

A school spent $150 on advertising for a breakfast fundraiser. Each plate of food was sold for $8.00

A school spent $150 on advertising for a breakfast fundraiser. Each plate of food was sold for $8.00 but cost the school $2.00 to prepare. After all expenses were paid, the school raised $2,400 at the fundraiser. Which equation can be used to find x, the number of plates that were sold?
Set up the cost equation C(x) where x is the number of plates sold:
C(x) = Cost per plate * x plates

The function P(x) = -30x^2 + 360x + 785 models the profit, P(x), earned by a theatre owner on the basis of a ticket price, x. Both the profit and the ticket price are in dollars. What is the maximum profit, and how much should the tickets cost?
Take the [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/dfii.php?term1=-30x%5E2+%2B+360x+%2B+785&fpt=0&ptarget1=0&ptarget2=0&itarget=0%2C1&starget=0%2C1&nsimp=8&pl=1st+Derivative']derivative of the profit function[/URL]:
P'(x) = -60x + 360
We find the maximum when we set the profit derivative equal to 0
-60x + 360 = 0
Subtract 360 from both sides:
-60x = -360
Divide each side by -60
[B]x = 6 <-- This is the ticket price to maximize profit[/B]
Substitute x = 6 into the profit equation:
P(6) = -30(6)^2 + 360(6) + 785
P(6) = -1080 + 2160 + 785
[B]P(6) = 1865[/B]

The original price of a computer was $895.00. Eleanor had a 25% off coupon which she was able to use to make the purchase. If sales tax of 6.5% was added after the discount was taken, how much did Eleanor pay altogether for the computer?
First, apply the discount:
$895 * 25% = $223.75
$895 - $223.75 = $671.25
Now, apply sales tax of 6.5% to this discount price of $671.25
$671.25 * 1.065 = [B]$714.88[/B]

The volleyball team and the wrestling team at Clarksville High School are having a joint car wash t

The volleyball team and the wrestling team at Clarksville High School are having a joint car wash today, and they are splitting the revenues. The volleyball team gets $4 per car. In addition, they have already brought in $81 from past fundraisers. The wrestling team has raised $85 in the past, and they are making $2 per car today. After washing a certain number of cars together, each team will have raised the same amount in total. What will that total be? How many cars will that take?
Set up the earnings equation for the volleyball team where w is the number of cars washed:
E = Price per cars washed * w + past fundraisers
E = 4w + 81
Set up the earnings equation for the wrestling team where w is the number of cars washed:
E = Price per cars washed * w + past fundraisers
E = 2w + 85
If the raised the same amount in total, set both earnings equations equal to each other:
4w + 81 = 2w + 85
Solve for [I]w[/I] in the equation 4w + 81 = 2w + 85
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group variables:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our variables 4w and 2w. To do that, we subtract 2w from both sides
4w + 81 - 2w = 2w + 85 - 2w
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Cancel 2w on the right side:[/B][/SIZE]
2w + 81 = 85
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 81 and 85. To do that, we subtract 81 from both sides
2w + 81 - 81 = 85 - 81
[SIZE=5][B]Step 4: Cancel 81 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
2w = 4
[SIZE=5][B]Step 5: Divide each side of the equation by 2[/B][/SIZE]
2w/2 = 4/2
w = [B]2 <-- How many cars it will take
[/B]
To get the total earnings, we take either the volleyball or wrestling team's Earnings equation and plug in w = 2:
E = 4(2) + 81
E = 8 + 81
E = [B]89 <-- Total Earnings[/B]

You are purchasing carpeting for an office building. The space to be carpeted is 30 feet by 50 feet. Company A charges $2.99 per square foot plus a $200 installation charge. Company B charges $19.99 per square yard plus a $500 installation charge. What is the best deal?
Did you notice the word snuck in on this problem? Company B is given in square [I][B]yards[/B][/I], not feet. Let's convert their price to square feet to match company A.
[U]Company B conversion:[/U]
Since we have 1 square yard = 3 feet * 3 feet = 9 square feet, we need to solve the following proportion:
$19.99/square yard * 1 square yard/9 feet = $19.99 square yard / 9 feet = $2.22 / square foot.
Now, let's set up the cost equations C(s) for each Company in square feet (s)
[LIST]
[*]Company A: C(s) = 200 + 2.99s
[*]Company B: C(s) = 500 + 2.22s
[/LIST]
The problem asks for s = 30 feet * 50 feet = 1500 square feet. So we want to calculate C(1500)
[U]Company A:[/U]
C(1500) = 200 + 2.99(1500)
C(1500) = 200 + 4485
C(1500) = 4685
[U]Company B:[/U]
C(1500) = 500 + 2.22(1500)
C(1500) = 500 + 3330
C(1500) = 3830
Since [B]Company B[/B] has the lower cost per square foot, they are the better buy.

You buy a container of cat litter for $12.25 and a bag of cat food for x dollars. The total purchase

You buy a container of cat litter for $12.25 and a bag of cat food for x dollars. The total purchase is $19.08, which includes 6% sales tax. Write and solve an equation to find the cost of the cat food.
Our purchase includes at cat litter and cat food. Adding those together, we're given:
12.25 + x = 19.08
To solve for x, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=12.25%2Bx%3D19.08&pl=Solve']we type this equation into our search engine[/URL], and we get:
x = 6.83
Since the cat food includes sales tax, we need to remove the sales tax of 6% to get the original purchase price.
Original purchase price = After tax price / (1 + tax rate)
Original purchase price = 6.83/1.06
Original purchase price = [B]$6.44[/B]

You can spend at most $35. If you buy 5 tickets, how much can you spend on each ticket

You can spend at most $35. If you buy 5 tickets, how much can you spend on each ticket
We're given the number of tickets as 5.
We know cost = price * quantity
Let p = price
The phrase [B]at most[/B] means less than or equal to, so we have:
5p <= 35
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/interval-notation-calculator.php?num=5p%3C%3D35&pl=Show+Interval+Notation']Plugging this inequality into our search engine[/URL], we have:

You have $10.00 to spend on tacos. Each taco costs $0.50. Write and solve an inequality that explain

You have $10.00 to spend on tacos. Each taco costs $0.50. Write and solve an inequality that explains how many tacos you can buy.
Let's start with t as the number of tacos.
We know that cost = price * quantity, so we have the following inequality for our taco spend:
[B]0.5t <= 10
[/B]
Divide each side of the inequality by 0.5 to isolate t:
0.5t/0.5 <= 10/0.5
Cancel the 0.5 on the left side and we get:
t <= [B]20

You went to the State Fair and spent $20. If cotton candy costs $2 and a soda pop costs $1. Which equation represents the relation between the number of cotton candy (c) and soda pops (s) you can buy?
Our total cost for 20 at the state fair is:
Cost of Cotton Candy + Cost of Soda = 20
We know that price = cost * quantity, so we have:
2c + 1s = 20
Since 1s is written as s, we have:
[B]2c + s = 20[/B]
