Keri, Neill, and Rich use toilet paper in their apartment in a ratio of 3:2:2. Rich buys two cases of toilet paper online for everyone`s use at 28 rolls per case, an average of \$3.50/roll and a \$14 delivery charge. If they each contribute to the cost of the toilet paper in direct proportion to the amount they use, how much must Keri contribute?

A. 87
B. 88
C. 89
D. 90
E. 92

Ratio for K:N:R would be 7x= 56 ' as two sets and each set has 28 rolls'
x=8 K:N:R = 24:16:16 toilet paper

Cost of the whole set : 3.5*56+14= 210
Cost per roll: 210/56= 3.75
Amount K would have to pay 3.75\$*24= 90\$ option D
