To order certain plants from a catalog, it costs \$3.00 per plant, plus a 5 percent sales tax, plus \$6.95 for shipping, and handling regardless of the number of plants ordered. If Company C ordered these plants from the catalog at the total cost of \$69.95, how many plants did Company C order?

Let number of plants ordered be: n

3n + 0.05(3n) + 6.95 = 69.95

1.05 (3n) = 69.95 - 6.95 = 63

n = 63 / (3 x 1.05) = 20

Therefore the company ordered 20 plants.
