A business bought r typewriters at $100 per typewriter and s calculators at $50 per calculator. What is the total cost of the typewriters and calculators?
A business bought r typewriters at $100 per typewriter and s calculators at $50 per calculator. What is the total cost of the typewriters and calculators?
A business bought r typewriters at $100 per typewriter and s calculators at $50 per calculator. What is the total cost of the typewriters and calculators?
I . The s calculators cost $200 II. 2r+s = 10
TOTAL COST
100R+50S = 50(2R+S)
FROM ONE ....INSUFF
FROM TWO
EACH 2 TYPEWRITERS AND 1 CALCULATOR = 10
THUS 100R+50S = 500
b IS MY ANSWER
For the equation 100R + 50S, we will get the total cost.
The second equation is 2R + S = 10 Why are we assuming that this 10 is the cost and multiplying by 50 on both sides will get us the total cost? It could be the of the typewriters and calculators which makes choice B insufficient and C sufficient.

We need to find the value of 100r + 50s.
(2) says that 2r + s = 10 multiply by 50: 50*(2r + s) = 100r + 50s = 500. So, we have the value we wanted. Thus this statement is sufficient. _________________

Why are we multiplying the equation 2r + s by 50 ? Can we multiply it by 100 and get the same correct answer?

Hello,
From the question what we need is
100r+50s=? which actually translates to 50(2r+s) = ?
Now,
Option 1:
cost of s calculator = 200 so we know each calculator is 50 hence all we know from option 1 is that we have 4 calculators But no idea about typewriter Yet
So option 1 alone is not enough
Option 2:
2r+ s = 10
which means that this can be directly substituted into the equation we derived from the question.
For the equation 100R + 50S, we will get the total cost.
The second equation is 2R + S = 10 Why are we assuming that this 10 is the cost and multiplying by 50 on both sides will get us the total cost? It could be the of the typewriters and calculators which makes choice B insufficient and C sufficient.
We need to find the value of 100r + 50s.
(2) says that 2r + s = 10 multiply by 50: 50*(2r + s) = 100r + 50s = 500. So, we have the value we wanted. Thus this statement is sufficient.
Why are we multiplying the equation 2r + s by 50 ? Can we multiply it by 100 and get the same correct answer?
We need to find the value of 100r + 50s. Do you get 100r + 50s when you multiply 2r + s by 100? _________________

(1) The s calculators cost $200
(2) 2r + s = 10
Given: Price of r typewriters = 100*r Price of s calculators = 50*s
Required: 100*r + 50*s =? Or 50(2r + s) = ?
Statement 1: s calculators cost $200 Or 50s = 200 This does not gives us anything about r. INSUFFICIENT
Statement 1: 2r + s = 10 This gives us the value of unknown entity in 50*(2r + s) Hence, the total cost can be found out. SUFFICIENT
