# The cost of an ice cream scoop is $11 and the cost of additional toppings is $1.50. Find the cost of an ice cream with 4 toppings.

Hint:

### 1. Cost of additional toppings = number of toppings × cost of each topping

2. Total cost = Cost of 1 ice cream scoop + cost of additional toppings.

## The correct answer is: Total cost of an ice cream with 4 additional toppings is $17.

### Step-by-step solution:-

We are given that-

Cost of 1 ice cream scoop = $11

Cost of each additional topping = $1.50

Let x be the number of toppings and y be the cost of entire ice-cream.

Cost of additional toppings = Cost of each topping × total number of toppings

∴ Cost of additional toppings = 1.50 x .................................................................................................. (Equation i)

Now, we know that-

cost of an icecream = y = Cost of 1 icecream scoop + cost of additional toppings

∴ y = 11 + 1.50 x ........ (From given information & Equation i) ....................... (Equation ii)

Now, we need to find the cost of an icecream with 4 additional toppings.

∴ x = 4

We substitute x = 4 in Equation ii-

y = 11 + 1.50x

∴ y = 11 + 1.50 (4)

∴ y = 11 + 6

∴ y = 17

Final Answer:-

∴ Total cost of an ice cream with 4 additional toppings is $17.
