9 bagels.


This question doesn’t state whether or not Nick wants cream cheese, so we’ll assume he doesn’t.

Since each bagel costs $0.75 and Nick has $7, he can afford #\frac{7}{0.75}# bagels.

#\frac{7}{0.75}=9.\overline{3}#, which rounds down to #9#.

So, Nick can afford 9 bagels, assuming he doens’t buy cream cheese.

I ignored the cream cheese part becuase the question asks specifically about bagels.
