[FONT=Trebuchet MS]josh went to the carnival with $12.24. it cost him $5.00 for admission and $0.75 for each ride. josh bought one drink for $1.25, and he rode as many rides as he could afford. if josh did not but anything else, how much money did he have when he left the carnival?[/FONT]

he has $12.24 in his pocket.. subtract 5 dollars for admission. thats 8:24. the drink was 1.25 now he has $5.99.. if each ride was .75 cents, then you can add 75 until it reaches the limit. .75 times 7 gives you 5.25.. after he is done riding, he only has 74 cents left. he cannot go in anymore rides. so .74 cents is the answer.
