75 basketballs cost $1,143.75. Find the cost of 26 basketballs.

A. $ 396.50

B. $ 346.50

C. $ 333.50

D. $ 426.50

**Answer : **A. $ 396.50

## Explanation:

This is a situation of direct variation.

Because, less number of basket balls —–> cost will be less.

**Given :**

75 basketballs cost = $1,143.75.

Cost of one basket ball = 1143.75 / 75 = 15.25

Then, cost of 26 basket balls = 15.25 x 26 = 396.50.

Hence, the cost of 26 basket balls is $ 396.50.
