Answer: the costs would be the same if he orders 29 rose flowers.

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x represent the number of roses that Victor would order such that the cost will be the same with either flower shop.

Dayton Florist charges $3 per rose, plus $12 for the vase. This means that if he orders x rose flowers, the total amount that he would pay is

3x + 12

Tammy’s Flowers, in contrast, charges $2 per rose and $41 for the vase. This means that if he orders x rose flowers, the total amount that he would pay is 2x + 41

For the costs to be the same, the number of rose flowers that he orders would be

3x + 12 = 2x + 41

3x – 2x = 41 – 12

x = 29
