Mrs. Willy bought 3.5 pounds of ground turkey and 2.5 pounds of white fish. The white fish is $4.60 per pound cheaper than the ground turkey. If she paid a total of $51.50 what is the price per pound she paid for the ground turkey and the white fish?

    W = T - 4.6

    3.5T + 2.5W = 51.5

    Substitute T-4.6 for W in second equation and solve for T. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for W. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.
