MAT117 Week Four Appendix D You’ve just been named the chair of your local PTA. You were elected to this position specifically because the other parents knew you were working on advancing your education and are in the middle of taking math classes. Unfortunately, many of them simply cannot figure out how to handle fundraisers including the budget, expenses or profit. You are planning a bake sale for the upcoming holiday and need to do planning. Here is what you are faced with: One group of parents is determined to sell sugar cookies. They are having a hard time understanding that not all of the money made from the sale of cookies will be profit, because it costs money to purchase the ingredients to make the cookies. You have determined the cost to make each cookie (x) is this: = - C 1004x 28 1a. What would it cost for ingredients , per cookie, to make 100 cookies? This solution would look like this: C=100/4*100-28. First I multiply 4 with 100: c=100/400-28. Then I subtract 400-28: c=100/372 then I simplify the equation C=25/93 then calculate. The cost per cookie when making 100 cookies is $0.27 1b. What would it cost for ingredients , per cookie, to make 500 cookies? To calculate the cost per cookie if making 500 cookies I first set up the equation C=100/4*500- 28. I multiply 500 with 4: C=100/20000-28. Then I subtract 28 from 2000: C=100/1972 and then I silmplify and solve the equation. The answer is $.05
