TOMS FABRIC                                                              BRIANS FABRIC

Ordering Charge $40                                                          $4 Per pound
$15 per graduation gown    

Write an equation for each  using C for total cost and P For price per graduation gown

1:Toms fabric :       
2: Brians fabric : 
3: What is the point of intersection?
4: What does this point represent in this situation?

let number of fabric be T

hence PT=C

solve for T



there for Tom's fabric T=C/P   P graduation per gown

Brains fabric will be 2/2/3=C/F where F is graduation per pound

T=10/2/3/F       where  F=4

making C the subject

C=2/2/3 *4


iii. point of intersection is T=2/2/3

iv. point of intersection indicates number of fabric is equal at certain cost and order per unit.
