After renting bowling shoes the person is left with $12.80-$0.5=$12.30, which is enough for 12.3/1.25<10=~9.

Answer: C.

(A) 7
(B) 8
(C) 9
(D) 10
(E) 11


If we let n = the number of games the person can bowl, we can create the equation:

0.5 + 1.25n = 12.80

1.25n = 12.3

n = 9.84

So we see that 9 complete games can be played.

Answer: C
