A bottle and a cork together cost $1.00. The bottle cost 90 cents more than the cork. How much does the cork cost?

Bottle - 95 cents
Cork - 5 cents

How would you write an equation for this?

  • algebra 1 -

    let the cost of the cork be x cents
    then the cost of the bottle is x+90 cents

    equation: x + x+90 = 100

    Thank you sooooo much!!!

    C is the cost of cork.
    90+C + C=100

    thank you!
