Calvin's trip to Home Depot
By: Calvin Shanks
Sheet of Wood
At Home Depot, the area of a sheet of wood was 32 sq ft. If the cost of the sheet of wood was $8 , plus $4 of tax, then what was the cost of one square foot?
Calvin earns $5 each week. He wants to buy a water pump that costs more than $50. If he already has $20 then how many weeks until he can buy his water pump?
For his science project he needed 3 light bulbs which were $3 each and 30 screws which were $0.05 each. He needs 4 sets of these for his project. He also has to pay $5 every week for all the light bulbs to stay on. How many weeks until he reaches $80?
Home Depot supported 2 companies for plant, Flower Power and Power to the Plants. Flower Power has a starting fee of $12 and costs $4 every plant, but Power to the Plants costs $8 per plant. How many plants would Calvin have to buy for Flower Power to be cheaper?
