A box full of geodes was put up for sale at an auction. A geode is a spherical rock that contains crystals. They look really cool when broken open. However you never know what you are going to find when you break one open. Gavin decided to bid on them. He checked them out beforehand and counted sixteen geodes in the box. He decided he was willing to pay up to $2.87 a piece for them. What should his maximum bid be?

Total value = Price per geode * Number of geodes
Total value = $2.87 * 16
Total value = $45.92

So, Gavin's maximum bid for the box of geodes should be $45.92.
