Kaitlin got a prepaid debit card with $30 on it. For her first purchase with the card, she bought some bulk ribbon at a craft store. The price of the ribbon was 16 cents per yard. If after that purchase there was $27.28 left on the card, how many yards of ribbon did Kaitlin buy?


  1. Answer:
    43.52 yards of ribbon
    Step-by-step explanation:
    First you want to subtract $30 – $27.28 = $2.72 to get the missing amount,
    Now you do $2.72 x $0.16 = 43.52 yards
    $0.16 was how much each yard costs
