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!
