Madison bought b pounds of bananas and p pounds of pears and spent a total of $10.38. The price of
bananas is $0.60 per pound. The price of pears is $1.74 per pound.
Create an equation that models the total amount of money that Madison spends on fruit.
The total amount spent is found by multiplying the price per pound by the number of pounds.
Total = (price per pound of bananas) x (pounds of bananas) + (price per pound of pears) x (pounds of pears)
0.6b + 1.74p = 10.38
