A high school athletic department bought 40 soccer uniforms at a cost of \$3,000. After soccer season, they returned some of the uniforms but only received \$40 per uniform. What was the difference between what they paid for each uniform and what they got for each return?

For the expression, I got 40(3,000) - x(40) Is this correct ? I used x as a variable but I forgotten about variables and I don't know how to solve them, so it would be nice to tell me how to solve as well. Thanks~!

1. You need to divide to find the cost per uniform.

(3,000 / 40) - 40x =

2. Sorry for late reply, I got \$75 when I divided. I need to find the difference between what they paid for each uniform, which is \$75, and what they got for return which is \$40, so do I still need the variable ? tanks very much Ms. Sue
