$24.95 -$6.95 = $18. Thus $8$tubes of paint cost $18.

($18) / 8 =$2.25 for $1$ tube of paint.

#### Explanation:

Once you remove the cost of the canvas from the total price, you're left with only the cost of the 8 tubes of paint.

This is represented by

$24.95 -$6.95 = $18 If $8$tubes of paint cost $18, then all we have to do is divide $18$ by $8$ to get the cost of each individual tube of paint.

Thus

($18) / 8 =$2.25

is the cost for one tube of paint.
