Step 1
a) 90
Here the number of bottles are less than 120.
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow\text{Price of each bottle is}\{2.50}$$
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow\text{The price of 90 bottles is,}$$
$$\displaystyle{\left({90}\right)}\times{\left(\{2.50}\right)}=\{225}$$
b) 120
The number of bottles are 120.
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow\text{Price of each bottle is}\{2.50}$$
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow\text{The price of 120 bottles is,}$$
$$\displaystyle{120}\times{\left(\{2.50}\right)}=\{300}$$
c) 150
Here the number of bottles are more than 150.
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow\text{Price of each bottle is}\{2.25}$$
$$\displaystyle\Rightarrow\text{The price of 150 bottles is,}$$
$$\displaystyle{\left({150}\right)}\times{\left(\{2.25}\right)}={337.5}$$
