Question

This question has two parts. First, answer Part A. Then, answer Part B.
Part A
The cheerleading squad is accepting donations and having a bake sale to raise funds for the program. The table shows the results from over the weekend where n represents the number of items sold at the bake sale.

Day Total Amount
Raised ($) Saturday 21n + 135 Sunday 17n + 160 Write an expression to show the total amount raised by the squad from the weekend. Part B Fill in the blank question. If the cheerleading squad sold each item for$3 at the bake sale, how much was raised in all?

1. The expression for the total amount raised is 38n + 295 and the actual amount is $409 ### The expression for total amount raised From the question, we have the following parameters that can be used in our computation: Day Total Amount Raised ($)
Saturday   21n + 135
Sunday     17n + 160
The Total Amount Raised is calculated as
Total Amount Raised = Saturday + Sunday
Substitute the known values in the above equation, so, we have the following representation
Total Amount Raised = 21n + 135 + 17n + 160
Evaluate the like terms
Total Amount Raised = 38n + 295

### The amount raised in total

Total Amount Raised = 38n + 295
Bake sale = $3 So, we have Total Amount Raised = 38 * 3 + 295 Evaluate Total Amount Raised = 409 This means that the actual amount is$409
