Question

# Meghana bought three bags of popcorn at the concession and a drink for $1.50. If she paid $3.75 total, how much was each bag of popcorn?

Hint:

- Hint:

○ Form equation using the given information.

○ Take the variable value as x or any alphabet.

## The correct answer is: $0.75.

- Step by step explanation:

○ Given:

Cost of drink = $1.50

Total money paid = $3.75

○ Step 1:

○ Let the price of 1 bag of popcorn be x.

So, according to given information.

3x + 1.50 = 3.75

3x = 3.75 - 1.50

3x = 2.25

x =

x = 0.75

∴ x = $0.75

Final Answer:

Hence, price of popcorn bag is $0.75.

### Use inductive reasoning to make a conjecture about the sum of a number and itself. Then use deductive reasoning to show the conjecture is true.

Informally, a hypothesis is just drawing assumptions about something based on what you already know and have observed.

A conjecture is formally defined as a based-on-observations, a statement considered true.

Speculation is similar to your opinion about something you follow or perhaps a knowledgeable estimate.

For example, observe the numbers below: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12. What number would come next? You're probably thinking 14, but What led you to that conclusion, and why? You may have seen the pattern and that the list is counting in twos.

The following number is 14 because the list counts by 2's, according to your hypothesis.

You saw the pattern and concluded without making any claim.
