Textbook Problem

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

Explanation

**Given Information:**

The breakdown charge per pound in packing is

**Formula used:**

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

Step

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,
