Selling Fuel Oil at a Loss

This Selling Fuel Oil at a Loss activity & project also includes:

Learners are asked to advise a fuel oil dealer on a possible investment. They must use two different rates to set up an equation and solve to determine how much oil he should sell now to break even after selling the remainder the next month. Might work best as a group or whole-class activity, but is an excellent way to solve a real-world business scenario with your algebra class.
