1. the \$18.75 cost for 4 BLT's come out to \$4.675 per sandwich
So, she needs to charge between
1.35 * 4.675 and 1.40 * 4.675

2. I am being told the answer is: between \$7.40-\$8.08. Just not sure how they came up with that.
Also the lettuce price should be \$1.80.

Thank you again for the help.

3. so add 55 cents to the total for a sum of 19.30, or 4.925 per BLT
The sale price p must then satisfy
1.35 * 4.925 <= p <= 1.40 * 4.925

I also don't know how they got their answer.
7.40/1.35 = 5.48
8.08/1.40 = 5.77
Those should be the same value.
