Question

you are on the 8th-grade dance committee and in charge of purchasing the refreshments. chips cost 79 cents a bag and sodas cost 99 cents a bottle. if you are asked to buy 12 bags of chips and 25 sodas, and you are given 35 dollars calculate whether or not you will be given enough money.

The total will be 0.79(12)+0.99(25) = $34.23. Since this is less than$35, you will have enough money.
