 Question 565493: Mrs.Martin bought 3 cups of coffee and 2 bagels and spent \$12.75. Mr.Martin bought 2 cups of coffee and 5 bagels and spent \$14.00. Write a system of equations that will allow you to find the cost of one cup of coffee and the cost of one bagel. Answer by ad_alta(240)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let 'b' be the price of a bagel and 'c' the price of a cup of coffee. Then we have 3c+2b=12.75 and 2c+5b=14. If we solve, we get c=\$3.25, b=\$1.50. That's expensive coffee!
