**Diptarka**, Monday, October 5, 2009 at 4:15pmSuppose sally bought x no of ordinary prencils.

Therefore, she 4x no of special pencils.

Expenditure on ordinary pencil = $0.20*x

Expenditure on special pencils = $0.35*4x

o.20*x+ 0.35*4x = 14.40

x= 26

so she bought 26 ordinary pencil and 4*26=104 special pencil.
