I see it already says that in the problem statement. Okay, write an expression for the total cost to ride the bus. Also, write an expression for the total cost of the water.

I amsuppose to use whole numbers. 8(3.00-.35)+ 4(2.00 -.55)??? seems kinda awkward

ex5 balloons for 2.95=5(3.00-.05)

How about 8*2.65 + 4*1.45 = 4(2*2.65 + 1.45)

yes but the teacher wants it in whole numbers like my example of 5 balloons

Well, then do that. 8*2.65 + 4*1.45 = 8(2.00 + 0.65) + 4(1.00 + 0.45) Why is that confusing?

it just doesn't seem any easier than 8*2.65 + 4*1.45

Truthfully, I'm not really seeing what is wanted. We can write it various ways, but without knowing the intent, there is little option but to guess. That's about it, then.
