    This is all I was provided. I don't get it either.

    Say the bottle costs x cents then cost of just the juice will be x + 90. Together the cost of the juice in a bottle is 2x + 90 = 100. Therefore the cost of the empty bottle is 5 cents.

    If the cost of the juice is $.90, that is not part of x. I don't know how you get 2x for your formula. Your logic seems faulty. Can you explain?

    the answer is 5 cents because if you look at a bottle, it says 5 cents -.-' its a tricky question
