Assignment: Shopping List Using Multi-Step Equations
1. The technical crew of the play needs shirts. Each shirt color
matches the job the crew will be working on. Different color
shirts have different designs and therefore cost different
amounts. You will need:
6 red shirts, at $10.90 each for the
lighting crew
4 yellow shirts at $ $10.50 each for the props
crew
5 purple shirts at $12.50 each for the make-up crew You
have $200.00 to spend on all the shirts. How many green shirts
can you purchase for the ushers if those shirts cost $11.50
each? If you spend less than your budget, how much money do
you have left over?
a.
(10.90 x 6)+(10.50 x 4)+(12.50 x 5)+(11.50n) = 200.00
b.
65.40 + 42.00 + 62.50 +11.50n = 200.00
c.
169.90 + 11.50n = 200.00169.90 – 169.90 +11.50n =
200.00 – 169.90
d.
11.50n = 30.10 / 11.50
e.
n = 2 ($7.10 is the change)
f.
I could buy 2 green shirts for the ushers and be left with
$7.10
2. Refreshments will be sold during the play’s intermission. The

servers estimate that they need: 74 bottles of water at $0.75
each and 150 bags of chips at $0.40 each. You have $150.00
total to spend on refreshments. Find out how much you will
spend for the water and chips. In addition, how many boxes of
