# 1 Answer

2.) $333.33

3.) 2000 = 6x

$2000 is the budget that you have so the purchase (equation) has to either equal that amount or be less than that amount. You know that you want to buy 6 chairs so you just multiply that by x (the cost of what the chairs can be for your budget).

Tommy,

I noticed that you posted the problem starting with bullet point 2. Did the first part of the problem relate the cost of the table? If it does express that information, then it would change the answers for all of the other parts of the problem.

Tommy,

I am sorry, there is no way to answer your question as there is crucial information missing. Theren is no information about the price of the table, not how many chairs are already bought or have to be bought. The word "additionally" tells me that other information is there. The answer $333.33 will not be correct without all the other info. I am sorry.
