problem using the amount of aluminum cans
that needs to collected to reach enough money to purchase a shoes. money will not be a factor in this problem but how much cans need to be collected to turn into money will be.
heather required to come with a 25% increase of cans in 1 year so that she can afford the shoes. she needs a total amount of 7000 cans to pay the total amount, how much does she have now?

1.25x = 7,000
x = 7,000 / 1.25
x = 5,600
