The Cupcake Cafe makes 4 1/2 times as much revenue on doughnuts as muffins. If the total sales was $44,000 for May, what dollar amount of each was sold?

D+M=44,000

4.5M+M=44,000

5.5M=44000

M=8000

then figure donut revenue

Represent the unknowns with variables.

Let x = total amount of Muffins sold in dollars

Let (4 1/2)x = total amount of Doughnuts sold in dollars (according to the first statement)

Then we set up the equation. Since their total is $44,000:

x + (4 1/2)x = 44000

Then we solve for x. We first convert the mixed number (the 4 1/2) to improper fraction. 4 1/2 = ((4 x 2) + 1)/2 = 9/2.

(x + (9/2)x = 44000) x 2

2x + 9x = 88000

11x = 88000

x = $ 8,000 (Muffins)

(9/2)x = $ 36,000 (Doughnuts)

Hope this helps~ :3
