Answers

a.

step-by-step explanation:

step 1 distribute 2 to every term in the parentheses

step 2 add 10 on both sides of the equal sign

answer:

it will cost 480 dollars to refurbish the larger wood floor

step-by-step explanation:

as it's a ratio of 4 that costs 384 dollars, divide the price by the ratio

384 / 4 = 96 dollars

96 dollars per unit of the ratio

now to get the price to refurbish the larger wood floor, times the price by the units

96 * 5 = 480

One rose bush = $3

One bunch of ornamental grass = $4

Step-by-step explanation:

We can set up a system of equations to solve for this. Let cost of 1 rose bush be r and cost of 1 ornamental grass be g. Thus we can form 2 equations:

14r+7g=70\\5r+14g=71

We can multiply the first equation by -2 so that we can eliminate g. Thus, we have:

(*-2)14r+7g=70\\5r+14g=71\\-------\\-28r-14g=-140\\5r+14g=71\\--------\\-23r=-69\\r=\frac{-69}{-23}=3

Thus, 1 rose bush is $3. Now plugging in r = 3 into the first original equation, we can solve for g:

14r+7g=70\\14(3)+7g=70\\42+7g=70\\7g=70-42\\7g=28\\g=\frac{28}{7}=4

Thus, 1 bunch of ornamental grass is $4.
