Answer:A. ($39)+(8)+(8)+(8)+(8)=71

Therfore he can buy 4 pairs of shorts.

B. No, if he wanted to buy 6 pairs of shorts it would be $87.00 with the sneakers. If he wanted to buy the shorts by themselves then it would only be $48.00 WITHOUT the sneakers.

C. The most amount of shorts he can buy would be 4 WITH the sneakers.
