That Makes Cents!
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     Nikki and Ethan wanted to buy a copy of Sports Underground. It was the newest sports magazine in the store. They were excited about it. Nikki loved volleyball. Ethan was a big football fan.
 
2     They called the store. The manager told them that the magazine cost $4.99. That was a problem for Nikki and Ethan. Nikki only had $3.74. Ethan only had $3.95. Neither one of them had enough money to buy the magazine.
 
3     "Let's see what we have altogether," Ethan said. "Maybe we have enough to buy one magazine. We could share it."
 
4     "That makes sense," Nikki said. "Let's do it."
