Answer:

$87

Step-by-step explanation:

Total bouncy balls = 120

one-half are priced at $0.25 each

1/2 of 120

= 1/2 × 120

= 120/2

= 60

Price of 1/2 = 60 × $0.25

= $15

one-fifth are priced at $0.75

1/5 of 120

= 1/5 × 120

= 120/5

= 24

Price of 1/5 = 24 × $0.75

= $18

Remaining bouncy balls = 120 – 60 – 24

= 36

Price of remaining balls = 36 × $1.50

= $54

Total value of the bouncy balls in the bin = Price of 1/2 + Price of 1/5 + Price of remaining balls

= $15 + $18 + $54

= $87
