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

Thanks!

Here's what I did:
c = $1000 + g c = 8b b = (1/4) g Thanks! 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

c = $1000 + g is correct C = g + 1000 seems the same but the correct translation is the second one _________________ Intern Joined: 10 Jun 2012 Posts: 14 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 34 [0], given: 66 Re: If Jack bought a computer for$1000 more than a generic mode [#permalink]
