Bob and Jean really like chocolate. When they heard the local cafe come up with a challenge to get a free chocolate sundae with each meal, they jumped at the chance. Their challenge was this. From the following menu, if you choose a complete meal that costs exactly \$5.00 before tax, you get a free chocolate sundae. They took a few moments and figured out 11 different menus that allowed this. This is your challenge. Can you find them?

Entree:
Shrimp, \$2.75
Chicken, \$3.15
Roast Beef, \$3.05
Ham, \$2.05

Cheese Fries, \$1.05
Double Baked, \$1.10

Asparagus, \$0.45
Medley, \$0.90

4. Ham, Cheese Fries, Veg Medley and Soda

6: Shrimp, Cheese Fries, Green Beans and Chocolate Milk
\$2.75 + \$1.05 + \$0.40 + \$0.80 = \$5.00

7: Shrimp, Double Baked, Asparagus and Milk
\$2.75 + \$1.10 + \$0.45 + \$0.70 = \$5.00

8: Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Asparagus and Coffee
\$3.15 + \$0.75 + \$0.45 + \$0.65 = \$5.00
