A bride has a budget of $3,000 to spend on flowers. She wants 9 dozen orchids, 18 dozen roses, 4 dozen lilies, and 6 dozen violets. Orchids cost $40 a dozen , roses cost $50 a dozen, lilies cost $65 a dozen and violets cost $35 a dozen. What will the fraction of the budget be on each flower?

Ms. Sue,
Orchids: 9 * 40 = 360
360/3000 = 120/1000 = 12/100 = 6/50 = 3/25
Follow the same procedure for the rest of the flowers.
