Jake is going to the store to buy one gallon of milk and 2 loaves of bread. The milk cost $2.98 a gallon. Jake's total was $6.94. How much did each loaf of bread cost?

Ok This is easy to do. The total is 6.94 and take away 2.98 that what the milk cost that leave 3.96, and that is what 2 loaf of bread cost. Divide 3.96 by 2 and that is 1.98 and that is what 1 loaf of bread cost.

If you do it like algebra it look like this

2(b) + 1(m) = 6.94

m = 2.98

2(b) + 1(2.98) = 6.94

2b =6.94-2.89 subtract 2.98 from both sides

2b=3.96 divide both sides by 2

1b=1.98

1b is the same as (b)
