It’s simple easy question, if 5 boxes à 30$, let put X boxes with 9$

Then: (9×5)/30 = 1.5 boxes

If 5 boxes cost 30 dollars, then one box costs 6 dollars (30/5=6)

Then: if you spend 9 dollars, you will buy one box and half.

It is an easy problem,

To buy the five boxes, you have spent 30 dollars

Thus, if you want to buy 1 box, you will pay 6 dollars for it

So, you will spend 9 dollars to buy 1 ½ box

Let x= the number of boxes that can be bought for $9.00

First, write the problem as proportion

x/9 = 5/30

then reduce the fraction:

x/9 = 1/6

Cross the multiply will result in:

6x=9

Divide both sides by 6: 6x/6 = 9/6

Arithmetic:

X=1.5

If the boxes can be bought in partial, the result is one and a half boxes.

30/5 = $6.00

This is the cost for 1 box

9/6 = 1.5

You can buy 1 ½ boxes with the 9.00 dollars
