    Answer:

      D.  $116.00

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Rounding to the nearest 1/2 dollar, the costs for one child are …

    • backpack: 29–57
    • binder: 4
    • 6 spirals: 2@2 = 4
    • 4 pens: 4@(1/2) = 2

    Total for one child = 39–67, so for 2 children will be 78–134. An answer choice in that range is $116.00.
