The technical crew of the play needs shirts. Each shirt color the job the crew will be
working on. Different color shirts have designs and therefore cost different amounts.
You Will Need:
6 red shirts, at $10.96 each for the lighting crew
4 yellow shirts, $10.50 each for the props crew
5 purple shirts at $12.50 each for the make-up crew
You have $200 to spend on all the shirts. How many green shirts can you purchase for the ushers
if those shirts cost $11.50 each. If you spend less than your budget, how much money do you
have left over?
How to Solve:
First you have to add up all the red, yellow and purple shirts and then subtract
that number by $200.00. After, divide the number from $310 to get the answer.
