Well then we need to know how much sales tax was charged, so that the total bill ended up being $1.00, and we need to know the original wholesale price that the seller purchased it for.

# You Buy A Bottle Of Juice For $1.00. The Juice Costs $0.90 More Than The Empty Bottle. How Much Does The Empty Bottle Cost. The Answer Isn't $0.10, $0.00, Or $1.00?

5 cents, making the juice 95 cents. 95 minus 5 is 90 cents more.

You must be working in algebra. You will not get a number answer because you do not have enough information. Let's say E = empty bottle J = juice YOUR equation would look something like:

(E + .90) + J = 1.00

subtract J from both sides

E+ .90 = 1.00 - J

Subtract .90 from both sides

E = 1.00 - J - .90

The equation is your final answer.

(E + .90) + J = 1.00

subtract J from both sides

E+ .90 = 1.00 - J

Subtract .90 from both sides

E = 1.00 - J - .90

The equation is your final answer.
