A class of 37 children was deciding what type of drink they should have when they go on picnic. 15 children said they would like cola, 17 said they would like orange and the remainder said they would like fruit juice. Cola and orange cost 35p each. Fruit juice costs 25p. How much the drinks would cost for the whole class?

Answer:

Total number of children = 35

Number of children who want cola = 15

Number of children who want orange = 17

Number of children who want fruit juice = 37 - (15+17) = 37-32 = 5

Total cost = (15 x 35p) + (17 x 35p) + (5 x 25p)

=(15 + 17) x 35p + (5 x 25p)

= 32 x 35p + (5 x 25p)

=1120p + 125p = 1245p
