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
5x5=305
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$
