Question:

Drew has three apples and six oranges that he wants to share with his friends. If Drew wants to share with Ally, Reid, Luke, Emma and Eva, how should Drew divide up the fruit so that everyone receives an equal amount?

The total number of people is six (Drew, Ally, Reid, Luke, Emma and Eva.) There are six oranges so each friend can receive his/her own orange. Since there are only three apples, Drew can cut the three apples in half, giving each friend a half of an apple. Therefore each friend will receive one orange and one half of an apple to enjoy.

Question:

Taylor wants to get \$225,000 for his house and the agent charges 20% of the selling price as her fee for selling the house. a) What price does the house need to sell for in order for Taylor to get \$225,000? b) What will be the agent's commission (fee)?

To solve the problem: a) Set the Selling Price = x and the agent's fee to .20x (20% of the Selling Price) The equation would be: Selling Price - Commission = \$225,000 x- 0.20x = \$225,000 0.80x = \$225,000 x= \$225,000/.80 x= \$281,250 The Selling Price = \$281,250 b) The commission (fee) for the agent is 20% of the selling price: Commission = 0.20x = 0.20(\$281,250) = \$56,250 You can check your work by entering the Selling Price and the Commission into the original equation: Selling Price - Commission = \$225,000 \$281,250 - \$56,250 = \$225,000
