If she were to make her first purchase 6 times, she would have
   12 scrunchies + 24 barrettes for $75.00
If she were to make her second purchase 4 times, she would have
   4 scrunchies + 24 barrettes for $49.00
The difference between these two scenarios is
   8 scrunchies = $26.00
Her scrunchies are $3.25 each.
Her barrettes are $1.50.
