The Blog adventures of a Substitute Teacher...
"Another Substitute" got the right answer and the method in the first try. I'm hiding his and other comments until tomorrow before revealing the answer sheet.
I think it would be 63 cents. I added up the what each of the kids still needed, then I thought I should add one, but one when I double checked my work the kids had enough money to buy the comb so I checked for 64 cents and they just had enough money to buy the comb so I subtracted one more cent and that seems to be the most the comb could cost.
I count 10 in pencil and 1 more if you include the pink square background.
63 cents. If Angela's money can't help Doreen to buy the comb, she can have only 5 cents at most. So the comb can cost only 5 + 58 = 63 cents at most.
63 cents IS the correct answer
