Fabian has $700 to spend at a bicycle store for some new gear and biking outfits. Assume all prices listed include tax. He buys a new bicycle for $387.10. He buys 3 bicycle reflectors for $4.43 each and a pair of bike gloves for $12.36. He plans to spend some or all of the money he has left to buy new biking outfits for $45.81 each. What is the greatest number of outfits Fabian can buy with the money that's left over?
x = the amount of money left over
Subtract the amount of money spent from 700 to get the amount of money left over. x = 700  [387.1 + 3(4.43) + 12.36] {subtracted the money spent from $700} x = 700  (387.1 + 13.29 + 12.36) {multiplied 3 by 4.43} x = 700  412.75 {added inside parentheses} x = 287.25 {subtracted} Divide the amount of money left over by the cost of each outfit, to get the number of outfits Fabian can buy. 287.25 ÷ 45.81 {divided money left over by cost of each outfit} ≈ 6.27 {divided and rounded} Fabian can buy, at most, 6 outfits.
