A soccer coach purchases 12 uniforms for 17.50 each. He buys 6 soccer balls for 8.58. How much did he spend in all?

I think that the answer should be solved by multiplying 12 times 17.50 and then addind 8.58 as the word each is only implied to uniforms and not the balls. My teacher has that you should assume the balls cost 8.58 each.

Which is the right answer?
