## Tay15 3 years ago Lesley has a gift card worth \$500 for a local entertainment store. Movies cost \$20 each and newly released video games cost \$50 each. In order to use the gift card, Lesley must purchase at least eleven items. Which is a combination of movies and newly released video games that Lesley could purchase using his gift card? 9 movies and 4 video games 3 movie and 10 video games 8 movies and 2 video games 13 movies and 6 video games

You can eliminate the third choice because it's only ten items (8+2) and Leslie has to buy eleven. You can also eliminate the second choice, because buying 10 video games at \$50 apiece would be \$500, and Leslie wouldn't have any money left to buy movies. That leaves the first and fourth choices. The first choice would be 9 movies at \$20 each or \$180 for movies, and 4 video games at \$50 each or \$200 for video games. \$180 plus \$200 is \$380, which is less than \$500, so Leslie could use her gift card for this. The fourth choice is 13 movies at \$20 each of \$260 for movies, and 6 video games at \$50 apiece or \$300. \$260 plus \$300 is \$560, which is more than \$500, so Leslie couldn't use her gift card for this. The answer is thus choice number one.
