Keri, Neill, and Rich use toilet paper in their apartment in a ratio of 3:2:2. Rich buys two cases of toilet paper online for everyone’s use at 28 rolls per case, an average of $3.50/roll and a $14 delivery charge. If they each contribute to the cost of the toilet paper in direct proportion to the amount they use, how much must Keri contribute?

Explanation


The three roommates spend a total of $210 on toilet paper. If you make your ratio box you will see that your ratio total is 7 and your actual total is 210, so your multiplier is 30.
Keri therefore needs to contribute $90.00 to the cost of the toilet paper.

Hello,

Please can you elaborate more on how did we get 210 $ and how did we know that the multiplier is 30?

thanks

1 case = 28 rolls

2 case = 56 rolls

56 rolls * 3.50 $ = 96 $ + 14 $ for the delivery = 210 $

(quite expensive as toilet paper, I would say)

The ratio is \(3:2:2 = 7 x\)

\(\frac{210}{7}= 30\)

We are looking for the first ratio 3x = 30*3= 90


Hope now is more clear to you.

Regards
