Noah paid $56 for a book and a CD player. The CD player cost 6 times as much as the book. What is the price difference between the two items?

Book = x

CD = 6x

 

x + 6x = 56

7x = 56

x = 8

 

Difference = 5x. (6x-x)

5*8 = 40. 

 

I hope this helped. :))

Hey there, Guest!

 

So Noah paid a total of $56 for a book and a CD player.

 

The equation would be this: 7x=$56

Then, we can simplify that to become x=$8

 

5x is the difference between the two.

So, 5*8= $40 is our answer.

 

Hope this helped! :)
