If Jack bought a computer for $1000 more than a generic model, then the price of that computer would have been 8 times the value of the accompanying bonus wireless router, which is 1/4th the price of the generic model. What is the price of the computer?
I've translated the words into the equations but can't approach it. Please help..
Here's what I did:
c = $1000 + g
c = 8b
b = (1/4) g
Continuing your approach and replace b with 1/4g in c= 8b
We get c = 2g
We also have c = 1000 + g
Equating, we get 2g = 1000 + g => g = 1000
Hence, the price of the computer = 2g = $2000
