The Glow Stick Challenge

By: Olivia Tabuso, Jade Nanai & Emily Phan

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!.
