**A family of five people has $200 to spend on fishing rods and fishing licenses. They spend a total of $20 on licenses. Assuming they buy 5 identical rods, what is the maximum amount they can spend on each rod?**

The maximum amount spend on each rod is,

$(200-20)\xf75=36$

A family of five people has $200 to spend on fishing rods and fishing licenses.

The expression for the maximum amount is:$(200-20)\xf75$

The maximum amount spends on each rod.

$\begin{array}{c}(200-20)\xf75=180\xf75\text{}\left[\text{subtract within parentheses}\right]\\ =36\text{}\left[\text{divide}\right]\end{array}$

Therefore,

The maximum amount spend on each rod is,

$(200-20)\xf75=36$
