## Answers ( )

so sam bought SIX pens for a TOTAL of $28.50. we have to figure out how much money each of the six pens cost.

steps:

1. divide the total by the amount of items purchased:

28.50 / 6 = 4.75

and there’s your answer! each pen cost $4.75

steps to check your work:

1. multiply the single cost by the amount of items purchased:

4.75 ( 6 ) = 28.50
