Question

6. You and a friend go to the store and purchase 3 candy bars that cost $0.84 each and 2 sodas that cost$1.80 each. You are going to split the cost. You pay for your half with a five dollar bill. How much change will you receive? Please SHOW your work.
A. $3.06 B.$1.60
C. $6.12 D.$1.94

correct answer is D) $1.94. Step-by-step explanation: To solve this problem, we first need to calculate the total cost of the candy bars and the sodas. The candy bars cost$0.84 each, so 3 candy bars cost 3*$0.84=$2.52. The sodas cost $1.80 each, so 2 sodas cost 2*$1.80=$3.60. The total cost of the candy bars and sodas is$2.52+$3.60=$6.12.
Since you are going to split the cost with your friend, you will pay for half, which is $6.12/2=$3.06. You pay for your half with a five dollar bill, so you will receive $5-$3.06=$1.94 in change. I hope it helps, let me know if you have another questions.

Answer: 1.94.
