If Ralph earned$189 on a job, how long did the job take?

Charge of Ralph:

Charge = $24 +$33 per hour

Let the time worked be = x.

For x hours, the cost = 33*x = 33x

Charge = 24 + 33x

24 + 33x = 189

33x = 189 - 24

33x = 165

x = 165/33

x = 5

The job took 5 hours.

### An 18 oz jar of peanut butter cost $2.19. A 48 oz jar of peanut butter sells for$4.39. Which size jar is the better buy? Why? Will give 15 points.

Ok, so we need to find the price per ounce.  If we take 2.19 and divide it by 18 that gives us 0.12 per ounce of peanut butter.  If we take 4.39 and divide it by 48 that gives us 0.09.  So we know the cheapest option is the 48 ounce jar.  Also, teachers love it if you include something like "However, if you don't need 48 ounces of peanut butter, the other jar is only 0.03 more per ounce."

### Your bill from Acme Supply Company is marked "3/15, net 30." The amount of the bill is $178.95. If you pay the bill within 15 days, how much should you tender? A little help please? Answer: you should tender$173.58

Step-by-step explanation:

Your bill from Acme Supply Company is marked "3/15, net 30"'

We know When "3/15, net 30" is marked on any bill, it means that if the bill is paid within 15 days there is 3% discount, otherwise net pay within 30 days.

In this question it is asked that if you pay the bill within 15 days, so it is clear that you get the discount of 3% on the bill of $178.95. Therefore we find the value less than 3% of$178.95.

= 3/100 × 178.95

= 0.03 × 178.95 = 5.3685 rounded to $5.37. Now subtract 3% amount from the bill amount. = 178.95 - 5.37 =$173.58

If you pay the bill within 15 days, you should tender \$173.58
