2 Answer

1. User Answers texaschic101
3 / 1.98 = 10 / x.....3 notebooks to $1.98 = 10 notebooks to $ x
and now u would just cross multiply and solve for x (the cost of 10 notebooks)

Answer:
The answer is 6.6$
Stepbystep explanation:
Firstly, you have to realize that the cost of a notebook is directly proportional to the amount of notebook you want.
So, the relation is:
Let
x=total cost of notebooks
y=amount of notebooks
[tex]\frac{x}{y} =k[/tex]
Where k is a constant
Therefore, the cost of 10 notebooks is:
Let z=total cost of 10 notebooks
[tex]\frac{1.98}{3}=\frac{z}{10}\\z=\frac{1.98*10}{3} \\z=6.6\\[/tex]
