# PLEASE HELP ASAP OFFERING 10 POINTSRaymond is buying boxes of party favors for his son's birthday party, He has to decide how many boxes he should purchase.a formula for this scenario is Z = FC ----- N25 children will attend the birthday party. if each child gets 3 party favors and there are 15 favors in each box, how many boxes should Raymond buy?Z = number of boxesF = number of favors each child will getC = number of children at the partyN = number of party favors per box

The answer is:  " 5 boxes " .  ___________________________________________________________ Explanation: ___________________________________________________________ Given the formula: ___________________________________________________________                           →   "  " ;                in which:                    Z = number of boxes ;   ← for which we shall solve ;                   F = number of favors each child will get  = " 3 " {given} ;                 C = number of children at the party =  " 25 " {given} ;                 N = number of party favors per box =  " 15 " {given} ;  ___________________________________________________________   →  Plug these given values into the formula/equation ;              to solve for:  " Z " ;  the number of boxes .   ___________________________________________________________ →    ;         →   ;                               The "3" cancels to a "1" ; and the "15" cancels to "5" ;                     →  {since: " 3 ÷ 3 = 1 " ;  and since:  "15 ÷ 3 = 5 " } ;  ____________________________________________________________ →  And we can rewrite as:                         ;   →  Note:  We change the:  "(1 * 25) "  (in the "numerator") ;  to:  " 25 " ;  to simplify;  since:  "any value", multiplied by "1", results in that same value.             →   As such:  "(1 * 25 = 25)" . ___________________________________________________________  And we can rewrite our equation as:             →  ; And can further reduce;                →  to solve for our answer, "Z", the "number of boxes";  as follows:             →    ;              →  [tex]Z =  " 5 "  . __________________________________________________________             →  The answer is:  " 5 boxes " .  __________________________________________________________ Hope this explanation is helpful!   Please comment if you need further clarification or have any questions.        Best wishes in your academic endeavors!
