If Jack had twice the amount of money that he has, he would have exactly the amount necessary to buy 3 hamburgers at $0.96 apiece and 2 milk shakes at$1.28 apiece. How much money does Jack have?

(A) $1.60 (B)$2.24

(C) $2.72 (D)$3.36

(E) $5.44 Let money Jack has be X. Twice the money = 2X Total money for 3 hamburgers = 3 x 0.96 =$2.88

Total money for 2 milk shakes = 2 x 1.28 = $2.56 2X = 2.88 + 2.56 =$5.44

X = $$\frac{5.44}{2}$$ = \$2.72
