The minimum amount will be $0.65*12 = $7.80 which is option B. There is no need to purchase 13 bagels. To get 13 bagels, purchase of 12 bagels is good enough. Give me +1 Kudos if you like the explanation. Thanks.

The minimum amount paid for 12 bagels is 0.65 x 12 = $7.80 and the customer will then get the 13th free.

Answer: B

A. $7.25
B. $7.80

E. $9.35


In order to pay the minimum possible price for 13 bagels, a customer would want to:

1) Be sure to take advantage of the promotion to get the 13th bagel free.

2) Buy the cheapest possible flavor of bagel.

So here that would mean buying 12 of the $0.65 flavor, and then getting the 13th free. The answer is therefore 12 * 0.65.

You can do this quickly by breaking the calculation into 10 * 0.65 (which is $6.50) plus 2 * 0.65 (which is $1.30) = $7.80. Choice B is correct.
