# Betty had \$40 in her pocket. she bought 12 identical bags of popcorn. betty was left with \$10 after buying the popcorn. what was the price, in dollars, of each bag of popcorn? 0.55 2.50 4.17 5.20 \$40-\$10=\$30, so Betty spent \$30 on the 12 packets of popcorn. This means that we need to share the \$30 by 12 to find out how much each packet had cost. \$30÷12=\$2.50. Therefore, your answer is \$2.50. Set up the equation: 40 represents the money Betty had initially. 12 is the coefficient for x, and represents how many bags of popcorn Betty bought. x represents the cost of a single bag of popcorn. 10 is the money Betty is left with.

Subtract 40 from both sides: Divide both sides by -12 to get x by itself: The cost of a single bag of popcorn is \$2.50. 2.50 40 - 12x = 10
-12x = 10 - 40
-12x = - 30
x = -30/-12
x = 2.50...so each bag of popcorn is : \$ 2.50 Each bag of popcorn cost \$2.50

\$40-\$10=30

\$30/12=2.5 Each bag of popcorn cost 2 dollars and fifty since

Step-by-step explanation:

To solve this problem, we first need to see how much money was spent in total which was thirty dollars. Then we can divide thirty by twelve to figure out how much each bag of popcorn cost! Hope this helps, have a great day! Each bag of popcorn costs \$2. 5

You can solve it by creating an equation. This one can be:

40 -12x = 10

Undo the operation.

40 -12x = 10

-40 -12x = 10 -40

Eliminate the 40. This will live you with the following.

-12x = -30

Divide -12x by -12. Do the same with the -30

-12x = -30/ -12

This will give you the answer.

x = 2.5 Hi Mrviral1k,

To solve your problem, you will need to divide and multiply.

So, if we take 40 by 10...

\$40-\$10=\$30

So now we need to take 30 by 12...

30/12 = 2.5

So, each bag was \$2.50.

Hope this helps! Thats the question ?

Step-by-step explanation: The price of each bag of popcorn after she bought 12 identical bags is \$2.50.
