Leona spent $57.95 at the mall. She bought a t-shirt and a book. The book cost $29.37. How much did the t-shirt cost?

Try subtracting 29.37 from 57.95, see what you get :)

Well, the answer you got from subtracting is how much the t-shirt cost

If you see, she only spent 57.95

Then subtracting, you'll get the answer for the t-shirt :)

Ok so writing the equation should be 57.95 - 29.37 = 28.58

I have a, b, c. Next is write your answer in the form of a sentence. I checked my book and there is no example. So do I say the cost of the t-shirt is $28.58? in c?
