Question

Write an expression to show the price of 2 discounted books when the first one is 20 + n and each one after that is (20 + n)(n - 5).

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 2Using the FOIL Method which is given by $(a+b)(c+d)=ac+ad+bc+bd,$ the given expression, $(20+n)(n-5) ,$ is equivalent to

$\begin{align*} & 20(n)+20(-5)+n(n)+n(-5) \\&= 20n-100+n^2-5n \\&= n^2+15n-100 .\end{align*}$

Hence, the price of the second book is $(n^2+15n-100)\text{ dollars}.$ Adding the price of the first book, $(20+n)$ dollars, then the total price of the two books is

$\begin{align*} & (20+n)+(n^2+15n-100) \\&= n^2+(n+15n)+(-100+20) \\&= (n^2+16n-80)\text{ dollars} .\end{align*}$
