Samantha is making some floral arrangements. The table shows the prices for one-half dozen of each type of flower.

Price for 1/2 dozen flowers
rose : \$5.29
Carnation : \$3.59
Tulip \$ 4.79

part A: Samantha wants to buy 6 roses, 4 carnations, and 8 tulips. She estimates that she will spend about \$14 on these flowers. Do you agree? Explain your answer.

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. 5
1. 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.
