Q:
# A long year-end status report for work is 130 pages long. You need to print 17 copies for a meeting next week. How much is the paper going to cost for those reports? Paper is sold in reams (500 pages) for $3.44 each

Accepted Solution

A:

The first thing you should do in this case is to know how much paper you need to print for the 17 copies.

We have then:

(17) * (130) = 2210

Then, you must calculate the number of reams you need:

n = (2210) / (500) = 4.42

You need 4 full reams and 42% of a fifth ream. So, the cost will be

C = (4.42) * (3.44) = 15.2048 $

The unit cost of each paper is:

Cu = (15.2048) / (2210) = 0.00688 $

answer

the paper is going to cost 0.00688 $ for those reports

We have then:

(17) * (130) = 2210

Then, you must calculate the number of reams you need:

n = (2210) / (500) = 4.42

You need 4 full reams and 42% of a fifth ream. So, the cost will be

C = (4.42) * (3.44) = 15.2048 $

The unit cost of each paper is:

Cu = (15.2048) / (2210) = 0.00688 $

answer

the paper is going to cost 0.00688 $ for those reports
