Question #19999

The tv costs $320. This is $40 more than four times what the old is worth let "w" represent what its worth. and write an equation

Expert's answer

let w be what the old is worth

then 4w is four time. As it is said, if you add 40 to 4w youget 320$, price of new tv

so 4w+40=320

hence

w=(320-40)/4 = 70$

then 4w is four time. As it is said, if you add 40 to 4w youget 320$, price of new tv

so 4w+40=320

hence

w=(320-40)/4 = 70$
