On a hot summer day, Leo and Stefano decided to buy some refreshments at the Fruit and Smoothies store.  Fruit kabobs cost $1.75 each and smoothies cost $2.50 each.  Homework Help ✎

  1. Leo ordered two fruit kabobs and one smoothie.  How much did he spend?

  • Find the cost of the fruit kabobs.
    2)($1.75) = $3.50

    Add this to the cost of the smoothie to find the total cost.
    $3.50 + $2.50 = $6.00

    The total cost was $6.00.

  1. Stefano ordered three fruit kabobs and four smoothies.  How much did he spend?

  • This is a very similar problem to part (a).
    Remember, this time there is more than one smoothie.

    $15.25

  1. Arturo could not decide, but he had $9.00 he could spend on fruit kabobs and smoothies.  He knows he wants at least one of each.  What are some combinations he can afford?  (Show at least three possibilities.)

    Try different combinations, using the method demonstrated in part (a). Check whether the total cost is $9.00 or less.
