## Apricots and Cookies

At Trader Joes Lauren bought two bags of apricots and a box of cookies for \$15.27. The cookies cost \$4.75. How much money did one bag of apricots cost?

## Salami and Pizza

At Trader Joe's Lauren wanted to buy some salami and one frozen pizza. The pizza costs \$5.12 and the salami costs \$3.25. Lauren only had \$18 to spend. How many packs of salami and a frozen pizza could she buy?

## Steak

At Trader Joe's Lauren bought three packages of steak. Each package of steak costs \$5.13 per lb, and \$1.16 for tax, How much can each package weigh if I have \$75 to spend?

## Apples

At Trader Joe's Lauren bought 9 packages of apples and used a coupon for \$5. At Tom Thumb Lauren bought three packages of apples and donated \$15 to charity. If she spent the same amount of money at each store, and the apples cost the same at each store, how much money did each package of apples cost?

## Reason Why I Chose Trader Joe's

I chose Trader Joe's because ever since I was seven years old, I have always loved their apricots. Additionally, I enjoyed the free samples when we made our weekly trip to the store.
