your answer would end up being \$26.00 if you use the equatoin : 8(2.50) + 6=
so 8(2.50) = 20 , 20 + 6 =26 :D

for every hour your going to add \$2.50 so for 8 hours your going to have to multiply 8 and \$2.50.. so you just add \$6 once because it dosent tell you how many sandpapers she bought. see, if the problem would have said she needed two sandpapers, then you would add \$12 to the answer.

(2.50)8=20
plus \$6.00 for the rental so it equals \$26.00
