**Reiny**, Monday, April 7, 2008 at 9:52am1. just translate the English into Math

"Two cassettes and three cd's cost $175" ---> 2x + 3y = 175

"four cassettes and one cd cost $125" ---> 4x + y = 125

2. double the first equation

4x + 6y = 350 then subtract the second

4x + y = 125

-------------

5y = 225

y = 45

back in the second

4x + 45 = 125

4x = 80

x = 20

(expensive cassettes and CDs)
