Ellen can purchase 5 apples for $1.75. How many apples can she get for $1? How much does each apple cost if Ellen can buy 5 for $1.75?

PLEASE HELP ASAP

Unit cost 175 cents / 5 apples = ........ cents per apple

100 cents / (175 cents/5 apples ) = ......... apples for 100 cents ($ 1 )

5/1.75 = x / 1 cross--multiply

5 = 1.75x divide both sides by 1.75

x ≈ 2.8 apples for $1

Cost per apple = 1.75 / 5 = 35 cents
