Question:

A
24

explanation

Let N represent the number of staplers purchased.

Set Up an Equation.

1.50N = 36.00

To isolate an unknown value N, divide both sides of the equation by 1.50.

\(\frac{\mathrm{1.50N } }{\mathrm{1.50}} = \frac{\mathrm{36.00 } }{\mathrm{1.50}}=24\)

The business purchased 24 staplers.
