if the total price for n copies of a book is $31.5, what is the per copy of the book? 1) if twice as many copies were bought for same total price, the price per copy would be 1,75$
2) if 4 fewer copies were bought for the samt total price, the price per copy would be $2.80 greater.

(n-4)*(x+2.8)=31.5 now it is all about system of equations, you should solve it for n-the number of books bought. suff. so D for me Zaur wrote: if the total price for n copies of a book is$31.5, what is the per copy of the book?

1. 1.75= 31.5/2n solving whic we get n=9
2. we get 2 eqn
31.5/n=price per copy(p)
31.5/(n-4)= p+2.80
so replacing P we get get eqn with one variable and hence can solve the eqn to get the ans
