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.

(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 -->

The apple costs \$0.50

The pear costs \$0.40
