Question:

A farmer sold 3 pints of strawberries for $1.98 each, 5 pints of raspberries for $2.49 each, and a bushel of peaches for $5.50 at his roadside stand. How much money did the farmer make?

A $23.89
Explaination

Multiply three pints of strawberries at $1.98 (3 × $1.98 = $5.94); 5 pints of raspberries at $2.49 (5 × $2.49 = $12.45) and 1 bushel of peaches at $5.50 (1 × $5.50 = $5.50). Add the products together to determine the amount of cash the farmer earned: $5.94 + $12.45 + $5.50 = $23.89.
