Mr. Sanchez took his wife and two children to the circus. Tickets were \$7.50 for adults and \$5.25 for children. Mr. Sanchez had \$30 to spend. Was that enough to pay the tickets? What, if any, change did he get back?

7_50+5_25=12.75
12.75+12.75=25.50
30_25.50=4.5

This is the answer right or f

Mr Sanchez + wife = 7.50 + 7.50 = \$15.00

Two children = 5.25 + 5.25 = \$10.50

\$15.00 + \$10.50 = ??

If you'd use proper notations (dollar signs, decimal points), I'd be able to tell better.
