The cost of making a gold necklace is $10 less than four times the cost of making a diamond ring. if the cost of making gold necklace is $50 then the total cost of making a gold necklace and a diamond ring is?

A. 50
B. 60
C. 65
D. 75
E. 80



Let D dollar be needed to make a diamond necklace

Cost of Gold necklace = 4D - 10

50 = 4D - 10

50 + 10 = 4D

D = 15.

Total cos of making a Gold and Diamond necklace: 15 + 50 = 65

C is the correct answer.

given
gold=4*diamond-10
50=4x-10
x=15
so gold +diamond ; 15+50 ; 65
IMO C
