Challenging Practice

Charlie has 1,243 stamps. He gives away 12 stamps. His father gives him 415 stamps. He divides as many stamps as possible equally among 4 albums.

Question 1.
How many stamps did he place in each album? He places 411 stamps in each album.

Explanation:
Given that Charlie has 1,243 stamps and he gives away 12 stamps then it will be 1,243 – 12 = 1,231 and his father gives him 415 stamps then it will be 1,231+415 which is 1,646. As he divides as many stamps as possible equally among 4 albums it will be 1,646÷4 which will be approx 411 stamps.

Question 2.
Based on your answer in Exercise 1, how many stamps are left over?
The cost of 2 televisions and 3 DVD players is $1,421. The cost of 1 DVD player is half the cost of 1 television. What is the cost of 1 television? Answer: Explanation: Given that the cost of 2 televisions and 3 DVD players is$1,421 and the cost of 1 DVD player is half the cost of 1 television. Let the cost of 1 DVD player be X, so the price of the television will be 2X. So 2 televisions and 3 DVD player will be 2(2X)+3(X) = $1,421 4X+3X =$1,421
7X = $1,421 X =$203.
So the cost of 1 television it will be 2($203) which is$406.
