Charlene's mom has agreed to let her do her holiday shopping using the Internet. Charlene has budgeted $100 for gifts this year, and she wants to buy presents for her mom, her dad, her little brother, her best friend, and her teacher. With the rest of her funds, she will buy materials to make holiday cards for other friends and family.
Charlene has two requirements for the Internet sites at which she will shop. First, they must abide by the rule that Internet sites not charge tax on purchases. Second, they must offer free shipping and handling for holiday shoppers.
After an hour of surfing the Web, Charlene has created the following list:
- TerifficTops.com sells women's sweaters for $23.79 - ForYourBrother.com has a marble racer for $12.22 - ScarvesAndMoreScarves.com sells one scarf for $8.99 or two for $14.95 - GardeningGrubbies.com lists all gardening books at $6.95 today only - MagicalBookworms.com offers Harry Potter books for $11.49 each - HowIsYourGarden.com has a video clearance, any video $12.25 - StuffForBoys.com sells mini-tractors for $2.72 each - TeachersAreTreasures.com has apple paperweights for $10.99 each
Here are the gifts Charlene has decided to buy:
How much will Charlene have left for card supplies after she completes these purchases?
