two silk butterflies and one silk rose cost 18 dollars. What is the cost of each?

This is for a problem solving class for future elementary school teachers. So far this section has only covered number patterns so I am a bit lost.

Indeed, all the information we currently have looks like:
2b + r = 18
 
In its current form, there is no way to determine a value for either variable.
