(show all steps) Remember to us "let" statement to begin.Answer by rfer(12670)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!let p = pitas let s = salads 5p+3s=19.90 8p+2s=26.10 ------------- 5p+3(26.10-8p)/2=19.90 5p=(78.30-24p)/2=19.90 5p+39.15-12p=19.90 -7p=-19.75 p=2.75 --------------------- 5(2.75)+3s=19.90 13.75+3s=19.90 3s=6.15 s=2.05 ----------------------- 3p+5s= 3(2.75)+5(2.05)= 8.25+10.25=18.50 20.00-18.50=\$1.50 change
