Jim's sandwich cost the same as the comjbined cost of his salad and milk. The sandwich cost three times as the milk. The salad cost $0.20 more than twice the cost of the milk. How much did Jim's lunch cost?
Sandwich = 3 milk
Salad = 2 milk + .20
3 milk = milk + 2 milk + .20
Milks cancel each other out, leaving the equation as unsolvable. Do you have any typos?
The answer is no solution, unless ur teacher says it has one. I had ethe same problem and its no solution. Hope this helps
