840 stickers were given to 42 children. 2/3 of the children were boys, and each of them received the same number of stickers. Each girl received twice as many stickers as each boy. How many stickers did each girl receive?

Solution: 42 children, 2/3 boys, that means: 2/3(42) = 28 boys & 14 girls

Let S = the # of stickers received by boys

Visited Middle & High School Math Classes, At Child's Way Charter School. 1/16/2013 Question 6

Mrs. Suarez bought 3 pairs of jeans and 5 shirts for $441.00. If each pair of jeans cost 2/3 as much as each shirt, 

a) What was the price of each pair of jeans? 

b) What was the price of each shirt? 

Solution: Let S be the price of shirts, and J be the price of the jeans. 

You are told: 3J + 5S = $441.00

                     J = (2/3)S 

Plug in J into the first equations: 

                    3(2/3)S + 5S =…
