1 Answer

  • Answer:

    No she didn't have exact money for the bicycle. She had $2 less in her savings in order to buy the bicycle.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Gisselle saved $6 every week in order to buy a bicycle.

    In weeks she had saved 8 × $6 = $48

    She found a used bicycle costing $50.

    So she had $50 - $48 = $2 less in her savings preventing her from buying the bicycle.
