**Question**: A meal in a fancy restaurant costs three times as much as a meal in the cafeteria. The meal in the fancy restaurant

costs $36. In a 5-day workweek, Mary ate lunch at the fancy restaurant once, and in the cafeteria for the rest of the

days. How much did she spend on lunch that week?

**Answer**: fancy restaurant = 36$

cafeteria = 36$ / 3

cafeteria= 12$

12 x 4 = 48

48$ lunch spend in cafeteria for 4 days

36$ lunch spend in fancy restaurant for 1 day

48 + 36 = 84$ total amount of expenses on lunch that week
