Dan and Barry are selling cheesecakes and pizzas for a school fundraiser. Dan sold 8 cheesecakes and 6 pizzas for a total of $184. Barry sold 10 cheesecakes and 3 pizzas for a total of $140. What is the cost of 1 cheesecake and 1 pizza?

## 1 Expert Answer

C = price of C

P = price of P

8C + 6P = 184

10C + 3P = 140

Multiply 2nd equation by 2 and subtract from 1st equation

8C + 6P = 184

-(20C + 6P = 280)

-12C = -96

C = 8

plug C = 8 into first equation and solve for P:

8(8) + 6P + 184

64 + 6P = 184

6P = 120

P = 6

Price of pizzas are $6 each and price of cheesecakes are $8 each.
