Each eraser costed $5

#### Explanation:

First thing that we have to know it that she spent a total of $25 and the magazine is $5.

We subtract the price of the magazine from the total spendings.

Knowing that you bought 4 erasers, you then divide the total amount of money left that you spent by how many erasers there are.

Therefore the price of the erasers are $5 each

P.S. Those are expencive erasers for $5 dollars each. Just go to the dollar store and get 3 erasers for $1
