Solution

## The correct option is C 97Number of red flowers = 45 Number of yellow flowers = 54 Total number of flowers = 196 Number of red and yellow flowers = Sum of red and yellow flowers = 45 + 54 Let's add the numbers using vertical addition. <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--> Keep in mind that we are adding like terms only. Therefore, the total number of red and yellow flowers is 99. Number of white flowers = Total number of flowers – Number of red and yellow flowers = 196 – 99 Let's subtract the numbers using vertical subtraction. <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--> Keep in mind that we are subtracting like terms only. Therefore, the total number of white flowers is 97.
