Part I.   Basic Computations 1. A discount store sold plastic cups for $3.25 each and ceramic cups for $4.50 each.  a. If 500 cups were sold for a total of $2,090, how many cups of each type were sold?  (5  points) Answer: 3.25x+4.5(500-x)=2090                  3.25x+2250-4.5x= 2090                         -2250        -2250                   3.25x-4.5x=-160 -1.25x=-160                                                   divide by -1.25                                 x=-160/-1.25                               x= 128 plastic cups.                       remaining will be ceramic cups                                   500-128=372 b. What was the dollar value of each type of cup sold? (5 points) Answer: 3.25(128)=$416 Plastic cups 4.50(500-128)= 4.5(372)=$1674 ceramic cups   2. LaToya Smith is a buyer for a large manufacturing company . She can purchase 200 pounds  of chemicals for $95.   She can also purchase mixing vats for $400 each.   Sales tax on all  products is 6% of the total cost of the order.  Shipping costs for her order will be a flat $30.  a.
