    You gotta explain it dude, not just the answer. We're promoting competitive problem solvers not just hungry-for-answers (Thus, leading to laziness) people.

    So he spent $60 total, at $4 each. How many did he buy?

    According to my calculations, he bought 15. (15*4 is 60)

    (Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm a bit doubtful when it comes to math.)

    15 is correct. Says he saved $37.50. Which means he would have paid $97.50 (37.50 + 60) So to get your answer, divide 97.5 by 15
