montel sold 13 popcorn buckets and 13 fruit basket for a fundraiser .the fruit basket cost 20.75 each . if montel rasised a total pf 468.00 how much did each popcorn buckets cost

2 Answer

  • Total money made = money made off of the popcorn + money made off of the fruit
    Total money made= # of popcorn buckets * cost of each bucket + # of fruit baskets * cost per basket
    $468 = 13p + 13($20.75)
    $468 = 13p + $269.75
    13p = $198.25
    Cost per popcorn bucket = $15.25
  • 1 fruit basket = $20.75
    13 fruit baskets = $20.75×13
    13 fruit baskets = $269.75
    13 poncorn buckets = $468.00-$269.75
    13 popcorn buckets = $198.25
    1 popcorn bucket = $198.25 ÷ 13
    1 popcorn bucket = $15.25

    If montel raised a total of $468.00 , each popcorn bucket cost $15.25.
