I just passed by and took a peek. Solved this on paper eal quick.Originally Posted by sugar_babee
There were 18 shirts in the case.
She sold 16 for $35 each.
Gotta go. I'd show the computations after work, or about 6 hours from now. Sorry.
Jaime bought a case of concert T-shirts for $450. She kept 2 for herself and sold the rest for $560, making a profit of $10 on each shirt. How many shirts were in the case?
I cant figure out the equations to make this work, if someone could help that would be great
Hello,Originally Posted by sugar_babee
1. contents of case: x
2. contents of case after self supply: x-2
3. price to be paid: y
4. price when sold: y+10
You get 2 equations:
Because you want to know x, solve equation 1 for y and plug this term into equation 2:
After a few transformations you'll get:
Solve for x and you get x=18 or x=-5. The negative result isn't very realistic.
