### Apples and Chocolate

1. We think that the chocolate bar is \$1.80c.

Jesiah & Kingston

1. How did you get \$1.80c?

Starford & Nezinli

2. Jephte & Richard and Kamire think it is 1.30 because \$1+\$1=\$2 and 30+30=60 and thats how we got it

2. I agree with jesiah I thik it's 1.80

4. Jesiah & Kingston

\$1.80 + 40c equals \$2.20
\$1.80 + 40c + another 40c equals \$2.60

2. I like your work Kingston and Jesiah! How did you decide to use 40 cents in your equation?

5. There's 2 apples, they both equal \$0.40C each and if you double them it will equal 80C. and the bar is \$1.80 and if you add them together you will get \$2.60C

2 Apples 40c each=80c + chocolate= \$1.80= \$2.60

1. I agree with you tui I think 1 chocolate bar is 1.80C. But how did you get it?

Jasmine

2. I do agree with you Tui because I do think that 1 chocolate bar cost \$1.80c which is right. But the question is? How did you get it.

David...

3. That's how I got it by trying to sort how much the apples cost and I found out that the apples were 40cents each and the first equation was 2 apples and 1 chocolate bar equals \$2.60 and the bar is \$1.80 and 2 apples are 40c= 80c and adding the \$1.80 from the bar equals \$2.60 and that's my way!!

6. Studz & Raihan

We agree with Jesiah and Kingston that each apple cost 40c and each chocolate bar cost \$1.80
\$1.80 + 40c = \$2.20
\$1.80 + 80c = \$2.60

7. We think it is \$1.80 because when we look at the first equation it was \$2.60, and
It had 2 apples, one chocolate, and the second one had 1 apple and cost 2.20 and the difference is 40c off. So we took off 40c from the 2nd equasion and is 1.80.....:)

1. Thanks Starford, now I can see where everyone was getting the 40 cents for one apple. I think equasion should be equation.

8. This is all very interesting and educational but I think that the point we are all overlooking here is...why didn't anyone buy me chocolate? I like chocolate. A lot.

9. Wow just wow

10. Wow great working out
