Hi Irma. Could you explain to me what the repeated addition model is? I think if I understood what the model actually is that I could help you with this problem.

Repeated addition is like 4+4+4

Ok so for this you would want the person to add the number '2.5', 5 times.

So could you say something like:

Kate went to the grocery store and wanted to buy 5 apples. One apple costs $2.50. How much would Kate's total come to?
