You buy a bottle of juice for \$1.00. The juice costs .90 cents more than the empty bottle. How much does the empty bottle cost?? The answer is not 10 cents, or \$1.00

• math -

Do you really mean 0.90 cents for your second number? or 0.90 dollars? (90 cents)
I will assume the latter.

Empty bottle cost + Juice cost = 1.00

Empty bottle cost + (Empty bottle cost + 0.90) = 1.00

2*(empty bottle cost) = 0.10
empty bottle cost = 0.05
