The first post in each topic is where you read it.
It is labeled as a "sticky".
In case you still don't see it, here is a link:
Basically what royhaas is getting at is that you have not showed any work or told us any thoughts as how you would do this problem.
If you were to tell us how you started trying to solve this...
For example:
"I figure that he bought 12 bottles of cola and that would be 24 bottles of orange juice which makes 14 cans of lemonade.
But 12*15 + 24*25 + 14*?"
Now, see, I have a question mark here. You could have asked us "How do I find out how much lemonade costs?".
I happen to think that you didn't copy all of the problem correctly but I could be wrong. Does anyone else see what I am saying...
You see, we don't just take copied problems and solve them for people. We need to know where you need help at...

This question is incomplete and makes no sense as written. Could there be a typo here? Please, retype your question correctly.
