1. ## probability

One person has q amount of $7.560,00 to buy a plot with a price of$ 15,00 per meter quadrado.Considerando that the cost to obtain documents of the property charges the buyer in 5% of the land, question is:

What is the maximum area that a person can buy with the money she has?

$480m^2$

2. Be more careful where you put the comma (,) in your numbers if you don't want people to misread the question. And the dot in "$7.560,00" doesn't help things either. My understanding of the question suggests that you solve 7,560,000 - (x)(1,500) - (5/100)(x)(1,500) = 0. Edit: Or in light of posts #3 and #4, solve 7.560,000 - (x)(15,00) - (5/100)(x)(15,00) = 0. 3. Actually, 7.560,00 is fairly common notation outside english-speaking countries for what we would call 7,560.00 - they use the comma as a decimal separator and the period as a thousands separator. 4.

No wonder I think everything is so expensive every time I visit. Hmmmmp ...... a cheap plot at what 'we' would call$15.00 m^2. Swampland if you ask me ......
