**David Q/R**, Saturday, September 1, 2012 at 5:24pmNot quite, I think. Call the number of kilos of apples A, and the number of kilos of berries B. Then you know that:

4A + B = $5.75

2A + B = $3.25

so subtract the second equation from the first, and you'll get

2A = $2.50, so A = $1.25. Subtract the 2A = $2.50 from the second equation and you'll get

B = $0.75, so A + B = $2, which means that 5A + 5B = $10.
