### Books, Books, Books!

Team up with a buddy and share your thinking and strategies as you attempt to solve this problem.

1. Starford and I think that the answer is 66. This is how we did it..

1 book to ship it is 1.30
5 books to ship it is 6.50

So 72.50 - 6.50 is \$66, we already knew we had to take away 6.50 from 72 because the total bill was 72.50 dollars.

2. Huelo-ata, JayLee, Dillon And I think that the answer is \$13.20 because

First we took away \$1.30 from each books (5 books) which is \$6.50, and so we took \$6.50 away from \$72.50 and the total we got left was \$66. Then we took \$1 away from \$66 to make \$65 because we knew that 13 x 5 equals 65 then we separated the \$1 to divide it into five groups which was 20 cents each. So that's how we came up with \$13.20

3. Jessica and Grace thinks that the answer is \$6.50

that if Mr Novella ordered 5 books from the children book club.
Charges were \$1.30 per book.
Each book coast the same amount.
The total bill was \$72.50.
How much was each book?

This is how we got the answer 5x130=? We go 5x100=500 and 5x30=150
500+150=6.50
