Problem Solving

Jane makes 20 equal payments to buy a cd player that sells for $180.How much is each payment?

Justine makes 30 equal payments to buy a car that sells for $15,000.How much is each payment?

<<Estimate each Quotient!>>

To how many significant figures? Do the division

<<Jane makes 20 equal payments to buy a cd player that sells for $180.How much is each payment?>>

If it is an interest free purchase, divide $180 by 20

<<Justine makes 30 equal payments to buy a car that sells for $15,000.How much is each payment?>>

That depends upon the car loan interest rate. It varies depending upon what promotion is going on to clear cars out of the lot.

I hope this is not an example of home schooling.
