4P + 5N = 2.00
3P + 4N = 1.58
nUMBER 2
let x represent the cost of the bicycle
so
The equation is
x + x  51= 199
Hope i helped... link me if u need nemore help
x=pencils
y=pen
==============
4x+5y=2.00
3x+4y=1.48
solve for x and y
S+B=199.00
S=B+51
==============
solve for S and B
For Problem #1
I get
x= 0.20
y = 0.24
for problem #2
I get
s=125
b=74
