A hotel rents a double occupanch room for $20 more than a single occupancy room. One night, the hotel took in $3115 after renting 15 double occupancy rooms and 26 single occupancy room. I need to write and solve a linear system equatio to find the cost of renting a double occupancy room and the cost of renting a single occupancy room...I don't know where to start...please help I'm confused.
