  1. Let x = suggested amount of donation

    If b is the number of bracelets given away, and every person who makes the suggested donation amount will be given one bracelet, then b is also the number of people donated.

    Therefore, the total collected amount is the number of people multiplied by the suggested amount, or
    Total = xb

    hope this helps~ `u`
