Six pears and three apples cost \$3.90. Two pears and five apples cost \$3.30. How much does one pear cost?

Hint: You have two unknowns (variables), so you need two equations. Write one equation for each situation and solve the system of equations.

count lblis needs to stop posting if hes not going to help....anyways I came up with 40 pears and 50 apples....40*6=2.40..50*3=1.50 and that adds to 3.90

40*2=.80...50*5=2.50 and that adds to 3.30

(1): Six pears and three apples cost \$3.90

(2): Two pears and five apples cost \$3.30

(1) - 3*(2):

three apples - 15 apples cost \$3.90 - 3*\$3.30 --->

12 apples costs \$6 -->

1 apple costs \$0.50
