please answer my question (math)

the price of a 3- pack spinner is one third the price of the of a dozen flyboys. write and solve a division equation to find the price of a dozen fly-boys. there are $3 for each 3-pack spinner . is the equation supposed to be n/12=27?

asked by Angelina
  1. You want n/12 = 3/4
    since n/12 is the price of one flyboy,
    and a $3 spinner is the same as 4 flyboys (1/3 dozen)

  2. X=$3÷3 (times 3 on both sides)
    x3 x3
    —————
    X=$9 for a dozen Fly-Boys.
