Tina uses a $50 gift certificate to buy a pair of pajamas for $17.97, a necklace for $25.49, and 3 pairs of socks that each cost the same amount. Tina has to pay $0.33 because the gift certificate does not cover the total cost of all the items. How much does each pair of socks cost?
do 50 minus 17.97 then take that answer and subtract 25.49 and divide that answer by 3 which equals $2.18. $2.18 is the answer
