Bottle Return

Posted on Tuesday, April 6th, 2010 at 9:58 pm

How do i solve this problem?

You have collected empty pop bottles to return for an 8¢ per bottle refund.You want to use the money to buy packs of trading cards for $1.50 per pack.After buying the packs you had no money left over.What is the fewest number of pop bottles you could have returned?How many packs of cards did you buy?

The fewest number of bottles is 19 and you can buy 1 pack of cards with that.

19 bottles X 0.08 each = $1.52 so you have .02 left over, but if you only have 18 bottles you dont have enough money for a pack of cards.
