The farmer's market is selling apples today at a price of 6 for $8.40. 1. Emma needs to buy 30 apples to make apple butter. How much will Emma pay for the apples at the farmer's market? Explain your reasoning. 2. Before buying the apples, Emma remembers that she only needs 26 apples for the apple butter. How much will 26 apples cost at the farmer's market? Explain your reasoning.
One apple cost = 8.40/6=1.4 $ . so for 26 apples she pay= 1.4*26=36.4
the triangles are similar. therefore the corresponding sides are in proportion:
divide both sides by 32
