Use the table to solve. If Luke needed to buy 2 more sticks of butter, for a total of 6 sticks of butter, how much money would he need to bring to the store to buy all the items? Round to the nearest dollar.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To buy all the items listed, he will need the sum of all the costs.

For apples, the cost is $0.99 per pound and he needs 5 pounds.

The apples will cost $4.95.

The total amount for the pie crusts is $4.98 in the table.

For butter, we need to find the cost of 6 sticks. In the table, 2 sticks of butter cost $3.29. Six sticks will cost three times as much.

The butter will cost $9.87.

Now, we need to add all the costs together.

When you add these items up, you get $19.80. Then, round to the nearest whole dollar. We need to round up, giving us $20.

Luke will need to bring $20 to buy all the items he needs for the apple pies.
