Jo needs to do 3 loads of laundry. If the washers take \$1.25 per load and the dryers take \$1.00 per load how many quarters will Jo need to bring?

3(\$1.25) + 3(\$1.00)
\$3.75 + \$3.00
\$6.75
What is the value of a quarter?  \$0.25   Divide \$6.75 by \$0.25
27
The entire equation would read:  3(\$1.25) + 3(\$1.00) / \$0.25

MCM: I have a B.A. in Sociology and a K-12 teaching credential, both of which I barely earned.
Would that I were able to relive those high school and college years, there would have been a different valedictorian. Well, salutatorian...

27.      \$6.75/.25 = 27

Clonge, How did you arrive at the \$6.75 ?
Clonge

Washers, 3 X \$1.25 = \$3.75. Dryers, 3 X \$1.00 = \$3.00. \$3.00 + \$3.75 = \$6.75. Detergent/bleach might be extra!

Five.  Simply jam all the clothes into one load and hang them out to dry when you're done.
