# The Glow Stick Challenge

## What Is Our Challenge?

Well, we need to find glow sticks for our school disco but, we only have a budget of \$100 to spend and approximately 580 student to provide for.

## What Have We Found So Far.

We found a provider and they can sell 1000 glow sticks for \$64.95 and our profit will be \$935.05 but, we still have \$35.05 left so what do we do? Well, we did this. We found another provider that was 250 glow sticks for \$37.

## Our Working Out (Very Long)

We have \$100 to spend. We found that 1000 glow sticks = \$64.95. 1 glow stick = \$64.95 divided by 1000 = \$0.06495.

10 glow sticks = \$0.6495 which is also known as \$0.65. 1000 glow sticks multiplied by \$1 each = \$1000 - 64.95 = \$935.05. That means that our profit will be \$935.05.

The 2nd provider that we found is 250 glow sticks for \$37.00. 1 glow stick = \$0.148. 10 glow sticks = \$1.48. 250 multiplied by 1 = \$250.00 - \$27.00 = \$213.00 which is the profit for the 2nd provider.

Our total spend is \$64.95 + \$37 = \$101.95. \$935.05 + \$213.00 = \$1,148.05 - \$101.95 = \$1,056.10. \$1,056.10 is our total profit. Our glow sticks to sell is 1000 + 250 = 1250.

We found these Prices on EBAY!.
