You collect baseball cards. Suppose you start out with 15. Since her father makes baseball cards, Cindy decides to quadruple your baseball cards. Since you're nice, you give Mike 10 baseball cards. Tiffany gives you another 12 baseball cards. Pearl gives you another 23 baseball cards. How many baseball cards do you have at the end?

__Solution__:

The given word problem is about the application of four basic operations. At the start, you have 15 baseball cards.

If Cindy quadruples your baseball cards, then you have 15 x 4 = 60 baseball cards.

If you give 10 baseball cards to Mike, then you have 60 - 10 = 50 baseball cards.

If Tiffany gives you 12 baseball cards, then you have 50 + 12 = 62 baseball cards.

Finally, if Pearl gives you 23 baseball cards, then you have 62 + 23 =

**85 baseball cards**at the end.
