A bottle of wine cost ten dollars. The wine worth nine
dollars more than the bottle. How much is the bottle
worth?

The question looks simple (in general)... but I guess its not.

please give explanation to your answer. :smt001

No guyzzz... none of the answers are correct.

please do some trial and error... but I can tell 10 dollors is not at all correct.

The bottle costs 50 cents i.e. 0.50$.. you said that wine is 9$ worth than bottle... So wine is 9.50$ and the bottle is 0.5$....... they add up to give ten dollars......

0.50$ is the answer

0.50 is the correct answer.

Those who answered 10 are totally wrong.

And the general answer to this question is 1.. which is wrong also.

just try this...

cost of the bottle ...'x'
cost of wine... 'x+9'

we know cost of bottle with wine is 10

therefore cost of "bottle with wine" => x + (x+9) = 10

Use this equation and you all will have the answer.
