Final Answer

Question:  The cost of Bazooka Joe Bubble Gum is $0.25 per pack.  Tommy has $2.25 and LOVES Bazooka Joe.  How many packs of gum can Tommy buy?


y = .25x   (where y is the total cost and x is the number of packs purchased)

2.25 = .25x

x = 2.25/.25 = 9

Tommy can buy 9 packs of Bazooka Joe gum.
