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?

• math/algebra -

Orchids: 9 * 40 = 360

360/3000 = 120/1000 = 12/100 = 6/50 = 3/25

Follow the same procedure for the rest of the flowers.
