200x\(8=\)1600

\((1600-1200)÷\)(8+2)=400÷10=40

Number of parcels damaged in July =

__Check__
Number of parcels delivered successfully = (200-40)x\(8= \)1280

Number of parcels delivered damaged = 40x\(2= \)80

Total earnings in July = \((1280-80) = \)1200

**Hahae wrote:**2. If Mr Tan buys 3 writing pads and 4 notebooks, he will have $2.75 left. If he buys 4 writing pads and 3 notebooks, he will have \(3.25 left. Given that each notebook cost \)1.25, find the total amount of money Mr Tan has.

W: Writing pads

N: Notebooks

3W+4N+$2.75 = 4W+3N+$3.25

Cost of 1 notebook = $1.25

3W+4(1.25)+2.75=4W+3(1.25)+3.25

3W+7.75=4W+7

W=0.75

3W+4N+2.75

3(0.75)+4(1.25)+2.75= 10

Total amount of money that Mr Tan has =

**Hahae wrote:**3. If Mrs Lim bought 4 plates and 7 cups, she will have \(10.75 left. If she wants to buy 7 plates and 4 cups, she will need another \)8.45 more. Given that each plate costs $8.55, how much money did Mrs Lim have?

P: Plates

C: Cups

4P+7C+\(10.75 = 7P+4C-\)8.45

Since cost of 1 plate = $8.55

4(8.55)+7C+10.75 = 7(8.55)+4C-8.45

7C+44.95=4C+51.40

3C=6.45

C=$2.15

4P+7C+\(10.75 = 4(\)8.55)+7(\(2.15)+\)10.75 = $60

Amount of money that Mrs Lim had =
