4. Aling Rosie bought a 50-kilogram sack of sugar for Php1 000. She packed it into 2.5 kilograms per pack and sold each pack for Php 70.00. How much did she gain? a. Equation: b. Solution and answer.​

Aling Rosie gained Php 400.00.

Step-by-step explanation:

A: the amount Aling Rosie gained

G: 50, 1000, 2.5, 70

O: division, multiplication, subtraction

N:  N = (50÷2.5)70-1000

N = (20×70)-1000

N = 1400 – 1000

N = 400

A: Aling Rosie gained Php 400.00.

Another way to solve:

Since she bought a 50-kilogram sack of sugar and she packed it into 2.5 kilogram per pack, we will divide 50 and 2.5 so the answer will be 20

And since she sold each pack for 70 we will multiply 20 by 70 so the answer is P1,400

Your question is how much did she gain, since she bought the 50-kilogram sack of sugar for P1,000.00. And she earned P1,400.00 selling the 2.5 kilogram per pack she will gain P400
