See the step by step solution

## Step 1 – Given information.

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

## Step 2 – Write the expression for amount.

The expression for the maximum amount is:$\left(200-20\right)÷5$

## Step 3 – Determine the maximum amount.

The maximum amount spends on each rod.

$\begin{array}{c}\left(200-20\right)÷5=180÷5\text{}\left[\text{subtract within parentheses}\right]\\ =36\text{}\left[\text{divide}\right]\end{array}$

Therefore,

The maximum amount spend on each rod is,

$\left(200-20\right)÷5=36$ ### Want to see more solutions like these?
