Jared wants to make scrapbooks with old family photos. An online scrapbooking company charges $24 for a basic book and $3 per page. Meanwhile, a family friend is willing to make a scrapbook for $29 plus $2 per page. For a certain number of pages, the price would be equal. How much would that cost? How many pages would that be?

Let P be the number of pages......so we have...

 

3P + 24   = 2P + 29      subtract 2P, 24 from each side

 

P = 5          so.....5 pages equalize the cost

 

And the cost is 3(5) + 24  = $39

 

 

cool cool cool
