1. ## Algebra question please help

A cashier uses the expressions d + s - c to check the amount of money in her cash drawer, where d is the initial amount in the drawer, s is the amount of cash that customers pay, and c is the amount of change that customers receive. Suppose the inital amount is $125, customers pay$15.00, $18.25, and$24.00, and the amount of change returned is $1.50 and$1.95. How much money is in the cashier's drawer?

Also, How much profit did the cashier make?

2. ok this is what I got but I hope is correct. You choose if you want to take it or not !

d=125
s= 15+18.25+24 = 57.25
c= 1.50+1.95=3.45

125+57.25+3.45= 178.8 is your answer
