A store sells bicycles for $250 each. In one week, the store had$1,250 in bicycle sales. How many bicycles did the store sell?

Each bicycle costs 250$$\rightarrow T o t a l b i c y c \le s a \le s = 250 \cdot x$where x is the total number of bicycles sold. $1250 = 250 \cdot x$Dividing both sides by 250 to isolate x: $\frac{1250}{250} = \frac{\cancel{250} \cdot x}{\cancel{250}}$$\rightarrow x = \frac{1250}{250} = 5\$
