Jorge has 2x + 1 saved in his piggy bank. Lou Ellen has x – 2 saved in the bank. What is the minimum amount Jorge will have in savings for them to have $163 together. Let j represent Jorge.

Answers

The minimum amount Jorge will have in savings for them to have $163 together is $110.34.

j = 2x + 1

= 2(54.67) + 1

= 109.34 + 1

= $110.34

So,

j + x – 2 = 163

110.34 + 54.67 – 2 = 163

165.01 – 2 = 163.01

Approximately,

163

Therefore, the minimum amount Jorge will have in savings for them to have $163 together is $110.34

The minimum amount JORGE will have in saving for them to both have $163 together is $110.34
