    Pls tell me the answer of Millie held a two-hour cookie sale to raise money for her school. Cookies were priced at $3 each. Millie raised $48 in the first hour. At the end of the sale, Millie had raised $105. How many cookies did Millie sell in the second hour?

    Answer for question 20 is incorrect. The correct answer is $262.95. The group left a 15% tip of the original bill, therefore need to work out the original bill first before adding the 15%. Working out is: 7 x $43.20 = $302.40 Bill x 115% = $302.40 Therefore Bill = $302.40 divided by 115% = $262.95 Using calculator, replace 115% with 1.15. Reverse check: $262.95 x 0.15 = $39.4425 $262.95 + $39.4425 = $302.3925 You cannot just take 85% of the amount the group paid to get the original bill!

    I think that the word of question 2 should be "how much does each pencil cost if" rather than "how much did the pencils cost?" as this implies the whole of the pencils.

      Hi Alexander, thanks for your comment and for highlighting the need to reconsider the wording of question 2. I am looking into it now for you. Have a great day.
