**A bar of chocolate is sold at $3.50 each or in packets of 4 at $12 per packet. Alice wants to buy exactly 38 bars of chocolate for a party. What is the least amount of money that Alice could have spent on the chocolates?**

**Solution**

38 bars --> 36 bars + 2 bars

--> 9 packets of 4 bars + 2 individual bars

--> (9 x $12) + (2 x $3.50)

= $108 + $7

= $115

**Answer: $115**
