So if 1 bottle costs $10. then 25 bottles will cost the price of 1 bottle x 25. i.e. $10 x 25 = $250.
Answers:
 5 friends . 5 x (4/5) = 4 bags
 3x(2/7) = 6/7 of the carton of milk
 8x(3/4) = 6 bottles
 15 x (3/16) = 45/16 pizza
1 dozen cookies – 3/4 of bag
10 dozen cookies – x bags
x = 10 x 3/4 = 30/4 bags
