There were 36,000 hardback copies of a certain novel sold before the paperback version was issued. From the time the first paperback copy was sold until the last copy of the novel was sold. 9 times as many paperback copies as hardback copies were sold. If a total of 441.000 copies of the novel were sold in all, how many paperback copies were sold?
(A) 45.000
(B) 360.000
(C) 364.500
(D) 392.000
(E) 396.900

I set Hardback = H and Paperback = 9H
36,000 + 9H + H = 441,000
10H = 405,000
H = 40,500

Plug H into the paperback formula
Paperback = 9(40,500)
Paperback = 364,500

Not sure if that is correct but that is how I went about solving it. Let me know.

Can you explain? I thought that 9H+H was accounting for this.

C

(441,000 - 36,000)*(9/10) = 364,500.

since 9 times as much as Hardback 10 = 441.000
9 = 441000*9/10 = 364500
