**drwls**, Friday, September 11, 2009 at 2:50amDoes that mean there were 105 saucers or that $105.00 was spent on saucers? If $105 was FOR sauccers, then $3325 was for cups and bowls.

You can write two independent equations for the number of cups (C) and the number of bowls, B.

One of them is B + C = 1600.

Write the other (based upon cost) and solve the two together.
