you gave this answer toa problem

If you received a \$10 reward, then you spent between \$50 and \$99.99
If you received a \$20 reward, then you could have spent \$100, \$125, or \$149.99.
If your purchase is \$98, then you'd be better off spending \$2 more, so that you'll get another \$10 gift card. That would be a net gain of \$8, plus the other \$10 gift card you got for the first \$50 you spent.

but i need to explain how i got this answer. I will not receive full credit unless there is work shown on how to solve the problem
