The correct answer to this question is B, 12 cans, .52 left over. To answer this question, we must first find how many cans Gary can buy. Knowing that he has $10 and each can of vegetables is .79, we would divide ten by .79. (10 / .79). Doing that gives us the number 12.

Then, to find how much money Gary has left over, we would first add multiple 12 by .79. This gives us 9.48. Lastly, we subtract 9.48 from 10, which gives us .52 for how much Gary has leftover. This type of question would be found in middle and high school tests, as well as SATs.

If Gary has $10.00 to buy cans of vegetables that cost .79 cents per can you would have to divide 10.00 by .79 and the answer would be 12 with a remainder of 52 cents. Gary could buy 12 cans and have 52 cents left over.
