The Problem

Layne wants to purchase 3 radio ads that will air for 2 days. Radio Station A asks for $25 per ad per day. Radio Station B costs $30 for the first ad and $15 for each ad following at the rate of $12 a day. How much does it cost to air 3 ads on Radio Station A for 2 days, compared to how much it costs to run the same ads on Radio Station B?

Ok, I have the

information,

now what do

I do with it?

What does the question ask?

Layne wants to purchase 3 radio ads that will air for 2 days. Radio Station A asks for $25 per ad per day. Radio Station B costs $30 for the first ad and $15 for each ad following at the rate of $12 a day.

How much does it cost to air 3 ads on Radio Station A for 2 days, compared to how much it costs to run the same ads on Radio Station B?


Slide6 l.jpg

Total price for Radio Station A.

Cost of ad

Number of ads

Number of days

Price of each day


Substitute and solve l.jpg
Substitute and Solve Radio Station A.

  • Layne wants to purchase 3 radio ads that will air for two days.

  • Radio Station A asks for $25 per ad per day.

  • 25a + 25d = t

25 (3) + 25(2) = t

75 + 50 = 125

The total for Radio Station A is $125.


Slide8 l.jpg

Total price for Radio Station B

Price for the first Ad

Price for each additional Ad

Price per day

Number of additional Ads

Number of days


Substitute solve l.jpg
Substitute & Solve more complicated.

Radio Station B costs $30 for the first ad and $15 for each ad following at the rate of $12 a day.

30 + 15a +12d = t

30+15(2)+12(2)=t

30+30+24=84

The total cost for radio station B is $84


Conclusion l.jpg
Conclusion more complicated.

Layne should pick Radio Station B because, by solving systems of equations, the final cost comes out to $84, compared to Radio station A, at $125.
