A club is producing posters.
00:00:03.885 --> 00:00:16.385
If the cost of producing one poster is 10 Egyptian pounds and the shipping cost of an order of any size is 27 Egyptian pounds, what is the total cost of producing and shipping an order of 𝑥 posters?
00:00:18.365 --> 00:00:21.415
So what we’re gonna do with this question is form an algebraic expression.
00:00:21.765 --> 00:00:23.545
And we’ve got some information here to help us.
00:00:24.145 --> 00:00:27.695
So we know that the cost of producing one poster is 10 Egyptian pounds.
00:00:28.275 --> 00:00:31.555
The shipping cost of any size is 27 Egyptian pounds.
00:00:31.975 --> 00:00:36.405
And what we’re trying to find the total cost of producing and shipping is an order of 𝑥 posters.
00:00:37.805 --> 00:00:45.895
Well, our production cost is gonna be equal to 10, because it’s 10 Egyptian pounds per poster, multiplied by the number of posters.
00:00:45.895 --> 00:00:47.505
Well, we’ve already said that is 𝑥.
00:00:48.985 --> 00:00:51.615
And using our algebraic notation, we’re gonna write this as 10𝑥.
00:00:53.245 --> 00:00:59.375
And our shipping cost is 27 Egyptian pounds because this doesn’t change with the number of posters that there are.
00:01:01.015 --> 00:01:07.295
And it’s worth noting that these are both Egyptian pounds, so 10𝑥 Egyptian pounds and 27 Egyptian pounds.
00:01:07.675 --> 00:01:16.055
So therefore, if we want to produce an expression for the whole lot, it’s gonna be 10𝑥 plus 27 Egyptian pounds.
00:01:18.575 --> 00:01:22.735
So this is the total cost of producing and shipping an order of 𝑥 posters.
