1940: A farmer sells 1 sack of potatoes for 2 dollars... 2 sacks for 4 dollars 3 for 6 4 x 2 = 8 5 x 2 = 10 ...
How much would the farmer receive for 9 sacks? (show all arithmetic work)
How much would the farmer receive for 3.5 sacks at 2.75 dollars per sack?
How much would the farmer receive for 4.2 sacks at 3.02 dollars per sack?
How much would the farmer receive for 7.67 sacks at 5.98 dollars per sack?
1950: A farmer sells a sack of potatoes for $2.00. The cost of producing it is 4/5 of the price. What is the profit?
1960: A farmer sells a sack of potatoes for $2.00. The cost of producing it is $1.60. Please figure out the profit.
1970: A farmer sells a set of potatoes (A) for a set of money (B). B is the set of all parts of B for which is: B is a dime. In the dash-set, you have to for the set of B, do (////////////////////) twenty small dashes, one for each dime. The set of the cost of producing (C) is sixteen (////////////////) small dashes. Draw the set of C as a part set of the set B and give the resulting set (D) which gives the answer for the question: What size has the profit set.
1980: A farmperson sells a sack of potatoes for $2.00. The cost of producing is 4/5 thereof, which is $1.60. The profit is 1/5, equal to $0.40. Underline the word "potatoes" and discuss it with your math study group.
1990: A farmer can produce a sack of potatoes at a cost of $2.00. These potatoes can not be exported due to foreign trade barriers and New World Order global policy. But, the US Government will buy them for $1.60 at taxpayers expense and ship them to any country that is at war with itself and/or its neighbor. How many potatoes will this farmer have to fry at MacDonalds in order to qualify this as a career move after retraining at the government's expense? Multiple choice: a). is that a LARGE fries? b). this answer will be considered a correct answer by all who have been deprived of the background experiences necessary to know the difference between growing potatoes and frying potatoes. c). would ye lik somthin to drink with that? d). there are insufficient facts to derive more than a theoretical exegesis of the presently evolving social structure. e). is that fer here or ta go?
2000: A US farmer can produce a sack of potatoes at a cost of 2000 yen......
