**Chelsea**, Tuesday, December 13, 2011 at 5:08pmThank you so much. How can We can find the average cost per animal by dividing total costs by number of animals.

Write an expression that helps solve the average cost per animal.

2200 + 1.50/x <<<would this be the answer

**Ethan**, Tuesday, December 13, 2011 at 5:42pmYou actually need parentheses around '2200 + 1.50x' when you are dividing to find the average. So (2200 + 1.5x)/x would be my answer. (I removed the 0 after 1.5 also, as 1.5 is the same number as 1.50.)
