Answer



If the bracelets are shipped separately, than the shipping cost will be $6 for each bracelet.

I assume all 8 bracelets were shipped together, as one package. If this is so, the total for the entire package is $6.

On this basis, the equation which represents the cost is:

x = the individual cost of each bracelet

8x + 6 = 54

You can solve for the cost of each bracelet as follows:

Solve for x
