11-107.

Three bouquet styles from Kris's Flower Shoppe are most popular. Style #1 uses three small bunches of carnations, four lilies, and two small bunches of daisies. Style #2 uses five small bunches of carnations and three small bunches of daisies. Style #3 uses one small bunch of carnations, four lilies, and four small bunches of daisies.

1. Organize the information into a styles $×$ flowers matrix named $B$.

$B =\left[{\begin{array}{ccc} 3 & 4 & 2\\ 5 & 0 & 3\\ 1 & 4 & 4 \end{array}}\right]$

2. Carnations cost $2.75$ for a small bunch, lilies cost $0.60$ each, and daisies cost $1.00$ for a small bunch. Organize the costs in a matrix named $C$.

$C=\left[{\begin{array}{c} 2.75\\ 0.60 \\ 1.00 \end{array}}\right]$

3. Which product, $BC$or $CB,$ makes sense to find the cost of each bouquet? Find that product.

Pay careful attention to which values are being multiplied and added together in each product.
