## rainbowink 3 years ago At a fast-food restaurant a hamburger costs \$2.96, an order of french fries costs \$1.17, and a small soft drink costs \$0.99, all tax included. Lewis had a coupon for half-off the price of 1 hamburger. What did he pay for his entire meal, including tax??

1. mikaa_toxica13

are there multiple choices ?

2. rainbowink

3. rainbowink

\$5.12 \$2.56 \$5.92

4. mikaa_toxica13

5. rainbowink

and 3.64

6. mikaa_toxica13

okaay im thinkin 5.12

7. znimon

Assuming Lewis buys one hamburger, one order of fries, and one soft drink the equation for that scenario is as follows: \$2.96/2 + \$1.17 + \$0.99 = x So solve for x (x = total cost of the meal given the previous scenario)

okay what do u think rainbowink ?

9. rainbowink

uhhhh i got nothin.....

10. znimon

Well with the given choices are there any combination Lewis may buy that give a total of \$5.12 or \$2.56 or \$5.92
