Thanks so much for this great Presentation on equations. I have feautured it as an embed on my student help website here: http://passyworldofmathematics.wordpress.com/2011/10/20/equations-word-problems/ .
A store’s cost (plus) markup is the price you pay for an item. Suppose a pair of shoes costs a store $35.48. You pay $70. Write and solve an equation to find the store’s markup.
Store pays $35.48 for a pair of shoes.
You pay $70.00
What is the markup (what the store adds) to the cost of the shoes to make it what you paid?
An oil field produces an average of 16.8 thousand barrels of crude oil per day. About how many days will it take to produce 200 thousand barrels?
Barrels Made In A Day X Number of Days = 200 Thousand Barrels 16.8 X Number of Days = 200 Thousand Barrels
17.
Word Problem Barrels Made In A Day X Number of Days = 200 Thousand Barrels 16.8 X Number of Days = 200 Thousand Barrels 16.8 16.8 Number of Days = 11.904, round to 12 Days. It will take 12 days to make 200 barrels of oil.
