Zoe needs to buy beads to make jewelry. For each earring, Zoe uses 3 small blue beads, 1 small metallic bead, and 2 large green beads. What is the total number of beads Zoe will need to buy to make 8 pairs of earrings?
For each earring, the number of beads is \(3+1+2=6\)
There are 2 earrings in a pair and since Zoe needs to make 8 pairs, there are a total of \(2(8)=16\) earrings. Hence, the total number of beads Zoe needs to buy is: \(16(6)=96\)
