So you want to know how much will 14 bags of seed cost, if the three bags cost 14.16$. What wan the first is the price of just a bag of seeds from birds and let's call it x. To achieve that we need to divide the cost of three bags of seeds by 3 and we get that x=14.16$/3=4.72$. So now that we know what a bag of seeds costs, we can simply multiply that by 14 and get our answer: 14*4.72$=66.08$
