Q:
# A Fruit Stand sells 6 oranges for $3.00 and grapefruit for $2.40 people buy 10 oranges and 11 grapefruits much does the fruit spend

Accepted Solution

A:

The correct answer is:

$31.40.

Explanation:

Since 6 oranges cost $3.00, we can divide to find the cost of one orange:

3.00/6 = $0.50. Each orange costs $0.50.

If ten oranges are bought, this would cost 10(0.50)=$5.00.

Each grapefruit costs $2.40; 11 of them would cost 11(2.40) = 26.40.

Together the total cost is $5+$26.40 = $31.40.

$31.40.
