A. $45

B. $54

D. $95

E. $117

..... paid a neighborhood boy $11 per week to mow their lawn...So, in

3 weeks, the amount the family paid for lawn-moving = (

3 weeks)($11/week) = $33

...the family paid $4 per DAY to feed and walk their dog...3 weeks =

21 DAYSSo, the amount the family paid for dog care = (

21 days)($4/day) = $84

TOTAL amount paid = $33 + $84 = $117

Answer: E

Cheers,
