Melissa bought 3 loaves of freshly baked bread at a specialty bread shop. She paid twice as much for the whole grain bread as for the French bread, and $2.50 more for the cinnamon raisin bread than for the whole grain bread. She spent a total of $11.25 for the 3 loaves. If f represents the price of a loaf of French bread, what equation describes this situation?

Prices    f    

              w = 2f

               r = 2.50 + w = 2.50 + 2f

  Summed, they equal  11.25

        f    +     2f      +     2.5 +2f      =     11.25   

                         solve for 'f' the french bread price, then w = 2f    and  r = 2.5 + 2f
