Sample Problem

A family eats at a restaurant and orders the following items from the menu:

Hamburger: $3.25

Cheeseburger: $4.15

Chicken Sandwich: $3.95

Grilled Cheese: $1.75

If the family orders 3 hamburgers, 2 cheeseburgers, 2 chicken sandwiches, and 4 grilled cheeses, what is the total cost of their order?

$

Solution

The cost of 3 hamburgers: 3.25 × 3 = 9.75

The cost of 2 cheeseburgers: 4.15 × 2 = 8.30

The cost of 2 sandwiches: 3.95 × 2 = 7.90

The cost of 4 grilled cheeses: 1.75 × 4 = 7

Thus, the total cost: 9.75 + 8.30 + 7.90 + 7 = 32.95
