Homework Help: Math

Posted by Paul M on Thursday, September 6, 2012 at 9:50pm.

A school cafeteria sells sandwiches for $4.50 each, cartons of milk for $1 and bananas for $.50 each. One table of students spent $36.00 total. They bought 2 more milks than sandwiches and they bought two times more sandwiches than bananas. How many bananas did the students buy?

I don't understand (obviously) 3 bananas ends up at $36.50, 2 ends up at $25.00 and 2 and 1/2 ends up at $30.75. This is my sons 6th grade homework and I really doubt they are looking for an answer of 2.85 bananas so what am I doing wrong here?
