    Answer:

    Grace could buy 1 or 2 bananas and not more than that and hence she cannot make the total count of fruits tleast 13.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Cost of 1 banana = $0.5

    Cost of 1 mango = $0.75

    Total money Grace  has = $7.25

    Grace has decided to buy 8 mangoes costing = 8 \times 0.75

                                                                                 = $6

    Grace has to buy a minimum of 13 mangoes and bananas altogether.

    After Grace buy 8 mangoes , money remaining with her = 7.25 – 6

                                                                                                  = $1.25

    With the remaining money she has to buy bananas which cost her $0.5 each.

    With $1.25 she can buy a maximum of 2 bananas only and the total number of fruits equals 10.

    Hence it is not possible to buy 13 fruits altogether.
