A toy store is selling a video game for a special price the week before Christmas. The store receives shipments Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The table below shows the number of video games shipped to the store and the number of video games sold during the week. Use this information to find the number of video games the store has left at the end of the week.

11
Correct Answer
D. 48
Explanation
The number of video games the store has left at the end of the week can be found by subtracting the total number of games sold from the total number of games received. The total number of games received is 39 + 31 + 41 = 111. The total number of games sold is 11 + 16 + 14 + 11 = 52. Therefore, the number of games left at the end of the week is 111 - 52 = 59.
