math

I tried to answer this but i don't know if i am even close. I included my work .Thanks.

The island's travelling sales monkey is selling gold watches that washed up on the beach. The islanders use green stones, pink clamshells and ox horns for money.Sixty-two green stones have the same value as 17 ox horns and 258 pink clamshells have the same value as 89 green stones. The monkey sells each watch for what is equivalent to $92.95. One ox horn is equal to $0.06. howm many green stones does the monkey get for each gold watch?

So far i have answered the question like this-

$92.95/0.06 =1549
1549/17=91
91x62=5642

Therefore a watch costs 5642 grren stones.

Am I doing this correctly, or am i missing steps? I am not sure if i am using the right strategy.

  1. 62g=17h
    258p=89g
    w=92.95
    h=0.06

    Since each ox horn is 6 cents, each green stone would equal 51/31 cents after plugged into equation (1).

    Then divide 92.95 by 51/31 to get approximately 5649.9 or 5650 green stones.

    Is that right?
