# Set up and solve equations for the following business situations.You are the shipping manager for World Imports. Calculate the total cost to ship an order of glassware weighing 1,860 pounds if the breakdown is $0.04 per pound for packing,$0.02 per pound for insurance, $0.13 per pound for transportation, and$132.40 for the crate.

To determine

To calculate: The total cost of shipping an order of 1,860 pounds, if breakdown charge per pound in packing is $0.04, insurance charge per pound is$0.02, transportation charge per pound is $0.13 and crate charge is$132.40.

Explanation

Given Information:

The breakdown charge per pound in packing is $0.04, insurance charge per pound is$0.02, transportation charge per pound is $0.13 and crate charge is$132.40 and the weight of the order is 1,860 pounds.

Formula used:

To solve the equation and prove the solution, follow the steps as mentioned below.

Step 1: Understand the problem and write the facts of the equation.

Step2: List the known and the unknows from the problem.

Step3: Write the equation with the help of following table of key word,

 Equal Sign Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division Parentheses Is And Less of Divide Times the quantity of Are Added to Less than Multiply Divided by Was Totals Smaller than Times Divided into Equals The sum of Minus Product of Quotient of Gives Plus Difference Multiplied by Ratio of Giving More than Decreased by Twice Leaves Larger than Reduced by Double Results in Increased by Take away Triple Produces Greater than Loss of At yields exceeds Fewer than @

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:

Underline the keyword by using the table of of key word.

Shipping charge is the sum of the individual charges multiply by the weight and crate charge.

Suppose that X be total cost for shipping.

Consider the breakdown charge per pound in packing, $0.04, insurance charge per pound is$0.02, transportation charge per pound is, $0.13 and crate charge is$132
