**Steve**, Friday, October 21, 2011 at 11:55amtotal cost for x,y

50x + 25y = 350

total cost for new x,y

50(2x) + 25(y/2) = 475

Putting it together:

50x + 25y = 350

100x + 25/2 y = 475

or, with no ugly fractions

50x + 25y = 350

200x + 25y = 950

Subtract top from bottom

150x = 600

x = 4

y = 6

50(4) + 25(6) = 350

50(8) + 25(3) = 475
