Math, microeconomics or criminal justice

2C + 3T = 23

6C+5T = 43

multiply 1st equation by 3 and subtract the 2nd equation from the result to eliminate one variable

6C + 9T = 69

6C + 5T =43

4T = 26

T = 26/4 = $6.50 for a table

2C = 23-3(6.5) = 23 -19.5

C = 3.5/2 = $1.75 for a chair

6(1.75)+5(6.5) = 10.5+32.5 = 43
