Read the questions given in the word problems on dividing money. We need to understand the statement and divide the amount of money as ordinary numbers with two digit numbers.

**1.** Ron buys 15 pens for $ 375.45. What is the cost of one pen?

Number of pens Ron bought = 15

Cost of 15 pens = $ 375.45

Therefore, cost of one pen = $ 375.45 ÷ 15 = $ 25.03

**2.** Shane bought 14 toys for $ 1547. Find the cost of 1 toy.

Number of toys Shane bought = 14

Cost of 14 toys = $ 1547

Therefore, cost of one toy = $ 1547.00 ÷ 14 = $ 110.50

**3.** Shelly buys 9 books for $ 211.59. What is the cost of one
book?

Number of books Shelly bought = 9

Cost of 9 books = $ 211.59

Therefore, cost of one book = $ 211.59 ÷ 9 = $ 23.51

**4.** Mike bought 15 kg of sugar for $ 667.50. What is the cost
of 1 kg of sugar?

Quantity of sugar Mike bought = 15 kg

Cost of 15 kg of sugar = $ 667.50

Therefore, cost of one kg of sugar = $ 667.50 ÷ 15 = $ 44.50

**5.** Sam paid $210.50 for 2 chocolate bars and 1 ice-cream. If cost of ice-cream is $62.50 find the cost of one chocolate bar.

**Solution:**

Cost of 2 chocolate bars = $210.50 - $62.50 = $ 148.00

Cost of 1 chocolate bar = $148 ÷ 2 = $74.00

Hence, cost of 1 chocolate bar = $74.00
