Part B: Along with the flowers, Samantha bought 4 packages of glass beads and 2 vases. The vases cost $3.59 each and the total sales tax was $1.34. The total amount she paid was $28.50, including sales tax. Explain an strategy she could use to find the cost of 1 package of glass beads.

  1. Henry

    5.29 + (2/3)*3.59 + (4/3)*4.79 = $14.07, Yes.

    28.50-(2*3.59)-1.34 = 19.98 = Cost of 4 pks. of glass beads.

    19.98/4 = $5.00 = Cost of 1 pk. of glass beads.
