Question

In 1902, 44 loaves of bread cost the same amount as 1 loaf of bread in 2006. If a loaf of bread in 2006 costs $1.72 more than in 1902, find the cost of a loaf of bread in 1902.

Solutions

VerifiedSolution A

Solution B

Step 1

1 of 2Let $x$ be the cost of a loaf of bread in 1902 and $y$ be the cost of a loaf of bread in 2006.

In 1902, 44 loaves of bread cost the same amount as 1 loaf of bread in 2006 so:

$44x=y\tag{1}$

A loaf of bread in 2006 costs $\$1.72$ more than in 1902:

$y=x+1.72\tag{2}$

Substitute (1) to (2) and solve for $x$:

$44x=x+1.72$

$43x= 1.72$

$x=0.04$

So, the cost of a loaf of bread in 1902 was:

$\color{#c34632}\$0.04$

Step 1

1 of 3let the cost of a loaf of bread in 1902 = X let the cost of a loaf of bread in 2006 = Y
