the answer is 3-4 because both 45 and 60 has a multiple of 15.

Step-by-step explanation:

Todd and agnes are making desserts. todd buys

peaches and a carton of vanilla yogurt. agnes

buys apples and a jar of honey. they bought

the same number of pieces of fruit. is there a

situation in which they pay the same amount for

their purchases? explain.

apples

peaches=

$1.25 for peaches$1.00 for apples

yogurt

honey=

$4 for yogurt$6 for honey

Todd:

Peaches + yogurt

1.25x + 4

Agnes:

1.00x + 6

Where,

x = number of pieces of fruit

Equate the cost of Todd and Agnes

1.25x + 4 = 1.00x + 6

1.25x - 1.00x = 6 - 4

0.25x = 2

x = 2/0.25

= 8

x = 8 fruits

The situation in which they both pay the same amount for their purchases is when they buy 8 fruits each

the difference between a number and 5 is -2.

step-by-step explanation:

notice that the equation you are given has -2 (negative 2) on the right side, not 2. when you subtract 5 from a number n, you are finding the difference between the number and 5.

the difference between a number and 5 is -2.
