 Question 604444: you order 2 tacos and 2 enchiladas for \$4.80. you friend order 3 tacos and 1 enchiladas for \$4. how much does each costAnswer by nerdybill(6961)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! you order 2 tacos and 2 enchiladas for \$4.80. you friend order 3 tacos and 1 enchiladas for \$4. how much does each cost . Let t = cost of a taco and e = cost of an enchilada . 2t + 2e = 4.80 3t + e = 4.00 . multiply bottom equation by -2 and add both equations together: 2t + 2e = 4.80 -6t - 2e = -8.00 ------------------- -4t = -3.20 t = -3.20/(-4) t = \$0.80 (or 80 cents for a taco) . enchilada: 3t + e = 4.00 3(0.80) + e = 4.00 2.40 + e = 4.00 e = 4.00 - 2.40 e = \$1.60
