  2. you spend $55.78 more buying luxury items then store brand items.

    step-by-step explanation:

    you have to add up all the items cost for the store-branded items. and then you have to add up all the items' costs for the luxury branded items. then you subtract the luxury item costs, from the store brand items and you get $55.78.

    I hope this it

  3. I almost agree with your process. I think you’ll subtract the store brand total from the luxury brand total, though.
    Double-check your math, just to be sure.
    Nice job!
