1. Let p = peaches and g = grapefruit.
Then 4p + 3g = #1.20(I can't write a pound sign on my computer so I wrote # be the pound sign).
2. You should be able to do 2 now.
3. For problem 3, you must solve the two equations set up in questions 1 and 2 simultaneously. Repost if you need help doing that.
