**Reiny**, Thursday, February 14, 2013 at 7:51amrulers --- x

folders --- x+16

x + x+16 = 36

2x = 20

x = 10 , then y = 26

so she bought 10 rulers and 16 folders

now to the cost:

cost of ruler --- y

cost of folder --- y + .5

10y + 16(y+ .5) = 20,2

10y + 16y + 8 = 20.2

26y = 12.2

y = .4692

A ruler costs $0.47 and a folder costs $ 0.97

check:

10(.47) + 16(.97) = 20.22
