Textbook Problem

Set up and solve equations for the following business situations.

En Vogue Menswear ordered short-sleeve shirts for $23.00 each and long-sleeve shirts for $28.50 each from Hugo Boss.

a. If the total order amounted to $9,862.50 for 375 shirts, how many of each were ordered?

b. What was the dollar amount of each type of shirt ordered?

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The number of short-sleeves and long sleeve shirts ordered, if En Vogue Menswear charges $9,862.50 for the order of 375 shirts and for one short-sleeves shirt is $23.00 and for one long-sleeves shirt is of $28.50.

Explanation

Given Information:

En Vogue Menswear charges $9,862.50 for the order of 375 shirts and for one short-sleeves shirt is $23.00 and for one long-sleeves shirt is of $28.50.

Step4: Solve the equation by rearrange the unknown values to the left side and known values to the right side of the equal sign.

Step5: Prove the solution by substituting the value obtained from step 4 in the equation formed in step 4 then check the left and right of the equation if, they are equal then the answer is correct.

Calculation:

The sum of price of each item multiply by its quantity equals total price, $15,496.50

Suppose that X be the number of short-sleeves ordered.

Consider the total number of shirts ordered, 375

Therefore, the number of long-sleeves ordered is 375X

Consider the cost of one short-sleeves shirt is $23.00 and of one long-sleeves shirt is $28.50.

Consider the cost of order of 375 shirts, (23.00)X+(28.50)(375X)=9,862.50

Now solve the equation,

(23.00)X+(28.50)(375X)=9,862.50.

Solve the parenthesis and combine the unknowns on left side,

(23.00)X+(28.50)(375X)=9,862

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The amount earned from the sale of short-sleeves and long sleeve shirts, if En Vogue Menswear charges $9,862.50 for the order of 375 shirts and for one short-sleeves shirt is $23.00 and for one long-sleeves shirt is of $28.50.
