2 Answer

  • 48/x+5 would be how much Angela would pay. They divided the tip evenly, so that is why it would be 48/x, since you do not know how many friends there are. Then, she paid 5 dollars, so that is the constant, and that is why it is added onto the amount she had to pay of the 48. I hope that helped. :)
  • The total amount Angela paying for the cab is in the form of expression [tex]\frac{48}{j} + 5[/tex].

    Given that ,

    Total fare of the cab = $48.

    Total fare divided between friends is = j

    Tip of the fare = $5

    We have to find ,

    How much amount did she pay in total.

    According to the question,

    Total amount she pay = Total fare of the cab รท Total fare divided between friends + Fare tip.

    Total amount she pay = [tex]\frac{48}{j} + 5[/tex]

    Hence, The required amount Angela pay for the cab is in the form of expression [tex]\frac{48}{j} + 5[/tex].
