Let x be the price of one box of bananas.
If we know, that 5 boxes sell for 30.00, we have $5x=30$
Now, divide each side by 5
$\frac{5x}{5}=\frac{30}{5}$
$x=6$
This means, that each box costs 6.00
Now, multiply each side of equation by 1.5
$1.5x=1.5×6.00$
$1.5x=9.00$
Thus, the nswer is: you can buy 1.5 boxes of bananas for 9.00$We have step-by-step solutions for your answer! Bob Huerta Answered 2021-12-15 Author has 41 answers $1\frac{1}{2}$ boxes of bananas cost 9.00$
