The equation would be: 2.27 + j = 51.23 and j = 2.04
Step-by-step explanation:
1. You will do 51.23 – 2.27, which equals 48.96
2. Then, you will divide 48.96 by 24, this equals 2.04
Hope this helps!

2. An equation is formed of two equal expressions. The cost of each bottle of juice is \$2.04.

### What is an equation?

An equation is formed when two equal expressions are equated together with the help of an equal sign ‘=’.
Given that Emma bought a bag of hips for \$2.27 and a 24-pack of juice bottles. The total cost before tax was \$51.23. Therefore, the equation for the total cost can be written as,
Total cost = Cost of a bag of hips + (Number of Juice bottles × Cost of Juice bottles)
\$51.23 = \$2.27 + (24 × j)
51.23 – 2.27 = 24j
24j = 48.96
j = 48.96 / 24
j = 2.04
Hence, the cost of each bottle of juice is \$2.04.
