A store sells tea for \$1.05, coffee for \$1.35 and hot chocolate for \$2.25. One day, the store sells 20250 drinks. 20 more coffee are sold than hot chocolate, and 30 more coffee are sold than tea. How many of each drink was sold?

• MATH HELP -

Both the numbers of hot choc and tea are stated in relation to coffee, so I will let the number of cups of coffee be x
then they sold x-20 hot chocs
and they sold x-30 teas
so x + x-20 + x-30 = 20250
3x - 50 = 20250
x = 6766.666

Something is wrong here!
Where does the price of these products enter the picture ?
