x=number of bracelets

y=number of necklaces

then

x+y=120

10x+12y=1400

Solve for x and y.

Quick mental calculation, no paper required:

If Rosa bought only necklaces, she would have paid 12*120=$1440.

Exchanging a necklace for a bracelet saves her $2, so to pay $1400, she must have saved $40, or bought 20 bracelets and 100 necklaces.
