They end up buying 20 bottles of wine all together. The first of the friends is named Jared; he has put in a total of \$306. The second is named Michael who has put \$207 toward their bottles of wine. The finale of the three is named Robert who has put in the most money with a total of \$387.

To do this the reader must first find out what the total cost of the wine was by adding all the amounts together, after doing this they will find that the total equals \$900. And once they have found this the next step is to divided the total cost by how many bottles were purchased (20) this number will then be 45, showing that it cost was \$45 per bottle.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
