    $71.00 is the total price we know the potting soil cost $12.50 so we subtract that from the total price. which gives you $58.50 now we know that is the total price for 6 shrubs so to work out how much one shrub is we divide this price by 6. $58.50 / 6 = $9.75 Dont forget to click good answer =)

    the equation would look like this 71.00 = P + 6s where p is the potting soil and s is the shrubs
