If f footballs cost d dollars...
With this info, how much does ONE football cost?
If you're not sure, try testing some values.
For example, if 3 footballs cost 15 dollars, then ONE football costs 5 dollars (aka 15/3 dollars)
If 7 footballs cost 28 dollars, then ONE football costs 4 dollars (aka 28/7 dollars)
If 10 footballs cost 80 dollars, then ONE football costs 8 dollars (aka 80/8 dollars)
See the pattern?

If f footballs cost d dollars, then ONE football costs d/f dollars

If ONE football costs d/f dollars, then TWO football costs (2)(d/f) dollars
If ONE football costs d/f dollars, then THREE football costs (3)(d/f) dollars
.
.
.

If ONE football costs d/f dollars, then TEN football costs (10)(d/f) dollars

Cheers,
Brent
