Question

A local baseball team bought 75 shirts from a t-shirt company. The team was charged $6.25 for total shipping but received a $20 team discount. If the total bill was $398.75, how much was each t-shirt?

Hint:

  • Hint:
○ Form the equation according to given information..
○ Take variable values as x or any alphabet.
○ Solve the equation to get value of x.
○ Shipping price will be added and discount price will be subtracted from total cost.

The correct answer is: $5.5.


    • Step by step explanation:
    ○ Given:
    rightwards double arrowTotal t-shirt brought = 75.
    rightwards double arrowtotal shipping cost = $6.25.
    rightwards double arrowtotal discount = $20.
    rightwards double arrowtotal money paid = $398.75.
    ○ Step 1:
    ○ Let the cost of each t-shirt  be x.
    ∴  total cost will be,
    rightwards double arrow(cost of 75 t-shirts + shipping cost - discount )

    rightwards double arrow(75x + 6.25 - 20 )
    ○ Step 2:
    ○ It is given that total cost is $398.75.

    ∴ 75x + 6.25 - 20  = 398.75

    rightwards double arrow75x = 398.75 + 20 - 6.25

    rightwards double arrow75x = 412.50

    rightwards double arrowx = fraction numerator 412.50 over denominator 75 end fraction

    rightwards double arrowx = 5.5

    • Final Answer:
    Hence, the price of one t-shirt is $5.5.
