Word Problem Wednesday: Valentine's Day Meal

By Mathnasium | Added Feb 15, 2017

 

Happy Wednesday, Mathnasium fans - here’s hoping you had a fantastic Valentine’s Day!  Like many of those out there who celebrated, this week’s word problem wraps up the day of love with dinner.  See if you can solve the problem and check back tomorrow for the answer!

Charlotte and Elijah’s Valentine’s Day dinner bill came out to $64.50, plus $3.87 sales tax. If they left a $20 tip, then how much did dinner cost in total?

Update:  Here's the solution!

Their dinner cost $88.37 total.  $64.50 plus $3.87 makes $68.37, and $20 more than that is $88.37.
