I don't understand. Do they want a pattern of shapes? How would I draw a shape that has more than one of the shapes, triangle, square, and rectangle together???

**PsyDAG**, Thursday, October 22, 2009 at 4:45pmI don't understand either. If you merely wanted to sum the values, I don't see how they can total $6.95. The problem is the $.95. How can you combine the 1.25 and .30 to get something ending in .95? The 1.00 ones will just fill in to get it up to 6.

.30 + .30 + .25 = .85

.30 + .25 + .25 + .25 = 1.05

Are you sure you don't have a typo in your numbers?

Once you find out how many of each shape you need, you probably can combine them any way you want.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

**Patrick**, Thursday, September 20, 2012 at 8:02pmIt must be an elementary question because I too have the same question on my homework. I was thinking the shape they are looking for is a trapezoid but still having problems getting to the .95 out of .30, 1.25 and 1.00
