I think the greatest she could buy is 63 bracelets 


total-shirt=money available for bracelets braceletstotalcost=numberofbracelets times cost per bracelet therefor divide both sides by cost per bracelet (braceletstotalcost)/(costperbracelet)=numberofbracelets so total=50 shirt=12 costperbracelet=.60 50-12=38=totalbraceletcost totalbraceletcost/costperbracelet=numberofbracelets 38/0.6=63.33 can't buy 0.333 bracelet round down 63 bracelets
