Kitchen sub flooring

Benjamin and Olivia are putting a new floor in their kitchen. To get the floor up to the desired height, they need to add 1 ft 1/8 of subfloor. They can do this in one of two ways. They can put 1/2-in. sheet on top of 5/8-in. board (note that the total would be 9/8 ft or 1 1/8 ft).

They could also put 3/8-in. board on top of 3/4-in. sheet.
The table below gives the price for each sheet of plywood from a Home Depot store on 1/15/04.

1/8 in. $9.15
1/4 in. 13.05
3/8 in. 14.99
1/2 in. 17.88
5/8 in. 19.13
3/4 in. 21.36
7/8 in. 25.23
1 in. 28.49

1). What is the combined price for a 1/2-in. sheet and a 5/8-in. sheet?

2). What is the combined price for a 3/8-in. sheet and a 3/4-in. sheet?

3). What other combination of sheets of plywood yields the needed 1 1/8 -in. thickness?
