1. The cost of popcorn, drinks, and candy is 5.25, 3.5, and 1.75.
Given,
Eva bought popcorn, candy, and a drink at the movies.
The popcorn was three times as expensive as the candy and the drink was twice as expensive as the candy.
Eva spent a total of 10.50
We need to find the cost of popcorn, candy, and drink.
We have,
Let the cost of the candy be C.
Now,
The popcorn was three times as expensive as the candy.
Cost of the Popcorn = 3C
The drink was twice as expensive as the candy.
Cost of the drink = 2C
Eva spent a total of 10.50
Cost of popcorn + cost of drink + cost of candy = 10.50
3C + 2C + C = 10.50
