The Everton college store paid 1519 for an order of 41 calculators. The store paid 9 for each scientific calculator. The other, all graphic calculators cost the store 55 each. How many of each type of calculators was ordered?. Thank you

drwls,
Let number of scientific calculators = s
Let number of graphing caclulators = g
s + g = 41
9s + 55 g = 1519
Multiply the first equation by 9
9s + 9g = 369
Now subtract #3 from #2
46g = 1150
g = 25
s = 41  g = ?
