A full bottle of juice costs \$2.00.If the cost of the juice is \$1.50 more than the cost of the bottle, how much does the empty bottle cost?

Hint: Answer is not 50 cents.

• math -

x + (x+1.50) = 2.00
2x = .50
x = .25

check:
if bottle costs 25 cents, then the juice costs \$1.75 (\$1.50 more)
total cost = \$2.00
