    Ignore the boxes of yellow yarn, they're insignificant.

    If each box has 25 balls in it, you would multiply the number of boxes by 25

    First do the red balls: 7 x 25 = 175

    Then the blue: 12 x 25 = 300

    Now you add the red balls and the blue balls.

    They ordered 475 balls of blue and red yarn. Or 300 blue and 175 red
