Ms.Sue when you answered my question you said x= 3.87 but then the daughters drink would be $2.97 and the sons drink would be $5.97 not 6.07 and the total wouldnt add up to $12.90, it would add up to 12.81.... i dont get this

Here's your original question.

My family went to starbucks. We ordered 3 drinks. My daughter's drink was .90 cents less than my drink and my sons drink was $2.20 more than my drink. The total bill was $12.90. How much was each drink? Use algebra.

3.87 + 2.20 = 6.07

Go back and do the problem the way I did -- but use the correct numbers.
