Ron paid $14 for a book and 4 pens. The price of each pen was 5/8 the price of the book. How much did Ron pay for the book?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Price of 4 pens => x

 

Price of a book => 14-x

 

14 - x = 14 - 4[5/8 (14 - x)]

 

x = 10

Hello abmusical2021,

 

Stop stealing the solutions from the other questions that have already been answered!

And that doesn't mean that you have to disliked everything if you made the mistake and you are aware that it is not allowed.

Please stop it.

Hello abmusical2021,

 

you don't have to answer again a question that has already been answered, only if you got another answer out of it - not in this case .

That answer would be better if it has a calculation step - like in this case \(\rightarrow\) Someone has answered a question with (!) calculation step and you just write it down. It looks like you stole it from that person with (!) the calculation path. Also, it's not called disliking directly if you know you made a mistake, they would apologise there, and you are also aware of what you are disliking, even though you know it's only true.

Helli abmusical2021,

 

i accept your apology, at least you apologised, the others would probably keep writing or unfortunately insulting.

Thank you.
