the cost of the apple granola is 0,25. The cost of the maple granola is 2,25

Step-by-step explanation:

m represents the cost of a maple granola. A bag of Maple granola costs \$2 more than a bag of apple granola, that way, the cost of a bag of maple granola can be presented as (m+2) and the cost of a bag of apple granola can be presented as m.

a. Six bags of maple granola are presented as 6 (m+2)

b. The cost of a bag of apple granola can be presented as m.

c. The cost of five bags of apple granola can be presented as 5m.

d. The equation that shows the total cost is 6 (m+2) + 5 m : 56

e. Solve the equation.

6 (m+2) + 5m:56

6m+12+5m:56

11m+12:56

11m:56-12

11m:44

m:44/11

m:0,25. That way, the cost of the apple granola is 0,25. Replacing this value into the the cost of the maple granola (m+2), the cost of the maple granola is 2,25
