Let
S = number of scientific calculators
"an order of 42 calculators."
42S = number of graphing calculators.
"the store paid $9 for each scientific calculator... graphing calculators, cost the store $56 each"
Total cost
= $9*S + $56*(42S)
Since the total cost is $1553, solve for S in
$1553 = $9*S + $56*(42S)
