Maths Mate Term 1 Sheet 6 Problem 23

The question said Jo spent 53 dollars on tulips and orchids.

The tulips cost 6 dollars each and orchids 7 dollars each.

First two numbers I got where 6 and 7 equals 13 next three I got where 7,7 and 6 witch equals 20 13+20 equals 33 but i’m not finished yet.

The last three numbers I got where 7,7 and 6 equals 20 again so 33+20 equals 53 yes there are 8 flowers and thats how I worked out this problem.
