Bella has been saving and she now has a total of $250. She wants to go to the toy store and buy a new game for her X-Box that costs $36.50. While at the toy store, she saw a doll that her sister really wanted. She bought the doll for $24.57. She also bought a remote control car for her brother that cost her $15.99. What was the the total amount of money that Bella spent at the Toy Store? What was her change?
X-Box Game $36.50
RC Car $15.99
$250 minus $77.06 equals $172.94
