Jen,
At the mall, you spent a total of $170.86. You bought 2 pairs of jeans for $ 39.95 each,a jacket for $45.99, and shirts for 14.99each. How many shirts did you buy?
jeans=$79.90
jacket=45.99
total cost so far=125.89
170.86125.89=$44.97
14.99x=44.97..solve for x, that's the amount of shirts bought.
