Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12.25 + 5x = 9.00 (subtract 2.25 from each side) 2.25  2.25 + 5x = 9.00  2.25 (combine like terms) 5x = 6.75 (now divide each side by 5) 5x/5 = 6.75/5 x = 1.35 do you understand ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now I think you can do C.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1C. Sharon's friend says that each key chain costs the same amount of money that the dolls costs. Is she correct ? Well, we have established that a key chain costs $1.35. We were told that the doll costs $ 2.25. Do they cost the same ? You can answer this one. D. If Sharon had not bought the doll and instead bought a pencil for 90 cents. I am not sure what you are asking.....how much would it cost, or how much change would she get back....lets figure both. .90 + 5(1.35) = new total cost .90 + 6.75 = 7.65 Now if she had $9.00, how much change would she get back ? 9.00  7.65 = 1.35 (change back) I am not sure what you were looking for in part D, but I hope I covered it for you.
