Let g represent the minimum amount of money Jamie needs to earn to pay his bills.

Jamie works part time at an accounting firm. He gets paid by the task: the more difficult the job, the more money he earns. Jamie needs to earn $875 to pay his bills. This week, he completed five tasks that paid $80, $75, $145, $250, and $80, respectively. Jamie has one more task to complete.

What is the minimum amount he needs to earn on his last task to pay his bills? 




Let d represent time in days.

Ono opens a small seafood restaurant. Her start-up costs total $32,550. Each day, she spends $750 on operating costs. She earns $1125 per day in sales. When will Ono begin to make a profit?

Hey, I'm not going to be rude but can you leave your problems up instead of editing and deleting it after someone answers it? Thank you!

875   - [  80 + 75 + 145 + 250 + 80 ]    = $245 is what he needs


We want to   find when  Costs =  Sales    where d  is the number of days it will take


32550  +  750d   =   1125d        subtract 750d from both sides


32550  =  375d                           divide both sides by  375


86.8  =  d   ≈    87 days
