what is a situation by the algebraic expression $3.50t

Write a situation that can be represented by the algebraic expression $3.50t

Write a situation that can be represented by the algebraic expression $3.50t.

Write one numerical Expression and one algebraic expression. Then explain what the difference between a numerical and algebraic expression is.

okay so the t is going to stand for how many turtles he wants. (which it can be any number that you want it to be.)
SO if he wants to buy 10 turtles then it is going to cost 35.00 he only has 45.00. he has enough money to buy 2 more, two more turtles will cost 42.00. SO there you go. 
$21

Okie! I always suppose to have the same homework! Haha.
Ok, lets get serious.
$3.50t is the same as $3.50 X t.
In this problem, t=5 pencils
Situation: Josh was buying t pencils. T is equal to 5 pencils. Each pencil cost $3.50. How much money will Josh need to pay if he buys 5 pencils?
Work: Multiply 5 and $3.50. The product will represent the total amount Josh needs to pay.
Hope this helps! Good luck!
