The camera = 91.98

The case = 6*the camera = 6*$91.98 = 551.88

The case is 551.88

Jamark, it doesn't seem logical that a camera case would cost six times the amount of the camera itself. I believe you might have misunderstood and reworded the question.

Was the problem originally written something like this:

A camera with case costs 91.98. If the cost of the case itself is 6x the cost of the camera, how much does the case cost?

1) The cost of the camera (x) plus the cost of the case (6x) = 91.98

2) x + 6x = 91.98

3) 7x = 91.98

4) Divide 91.98 by 7 to get the value of x

5) x = 13.14

6) The cost of the camera (x) is 13.14. The cost of the case (6x) is therefore 6 * 13.14 = 78.84

7) Replace 13.14 for 'x' in the equation [step 2) above]

8) (13.14) + (6*13.14) = 91.98

9) 13.14 + 78.84 = 91.98

10) 91.98 DOES = 91.98

*After you solve the equation, always reread the original question to ensure you answer what the problem is asking!
