Let hockey pucks be a

let honey sticks be b

1st eqn --> 5a + 3b = 23

2nd eqn --> 5a + b = 20

Eqn 1 - eqn 2 will give you

2b = 3

Hence b, which is one honey stick will cost 3/2 which is $1.50

Substituting b = 1.5 into eqn two will give u the answer the question is asking for

try it for yourself. (:

answer is $3.70 btw.
