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

  • math -
