## How To Determine The Total Number Of Bottles Using An Equation

#### The Problem

Each skid holds 3 boxes by 3 boxes on each levelEach box is filled with a maximum of 100 Bottles.

Sometimes each box has an amount less than 100 (between 1 and 10)

I will use the variable "d" to represent this.

The skid can be packed with any number of layers of boxes

I will use the variable "h" to represent this.

We need to know how many individual bottles are on the entire skid.

#### The Solution

I came up with this formula to make it easy and quick to figure out.#### 900h-9hd=y

Where "h" is how many boxes high the skid is.Where "d" is how many bottles short of 100 each box is.

where "y" is how many bottle there are in total on the skid.

The skid in the example above will have 5 layers and each

box is short 4 bottles.

Therefore:

900x5-9x5x4=y

4500-180=y

y=4320

This skid will have 4320 bottles in total.

What percentage of the letters of the name "Pascal" are vowels?

## Answer

P-A-S-C-A-L = 6 Letters in total

There are two vowles (A twice)

2/6 = 0.33333333

Therefore 33.33% of the letters are vowels. (rounded to 2 decimals)

What percentage of the letters of the name "Pascal" are consonants?

## Answer

P-A-S-C-A-L = 6 Letters in total

There are four consonants (P, S, C and L)

4/6 = 0.6666666666

Therefore 66.67% of the letters are vowels. (rounded to 2 decimals)
