Answer:

500 vitamins costs #$10#

Explanation:

We know that 200 vitamins cost $4.75; we are trying to find what 500 vitamins cost

In order to do this, we have to find the cost of 1 vitamin:

total cost/total amount = #($4.75)/(200)# = #$0.02# per vitamin

Now to get the cost of 500 vitamins:

#$0.02 * 500# vitamins = #$10#
