Marvin and Alicia are putting new carpet in their living room. The carpet costs $4.15 per square foot and $97 to have it installed. Their total bill before sales tax is $1798.50. whats the equation?

I assume you'd like to find the square footage....we have

 

Cost of carpet + Installation charge  = Total Cost

 

4.15s + 97  = 1798.50     where s is the square footage    ....subtract 97 from both sides

 

4.15s  = 1701.50      divide both sides by 4.15

 

s  = 410  square feet

Your finally on! There is someone on here posting very inappropriate comments and answers. I'm afraid to say I know who it is, but they are as a "guest"
