Casey bought a 15.4-pound turkey and an 11.6-pound ham for thanksgiving and paid $38.51. Her friend Jane bought a 10.2-pound turkey and a 7.3-pound ham from the same store and paid $24.84. Find the cost per pound of turkey and the cost per pound of ham.

Correct answer:

h =  1.74
t =  1.19

Step-by-step explanation:

15.4t + 11.6h = 38.51
10.2t + 7.3h = 24.84

15.4•t + 11.6•h = 38.51
10.2•t + 7.3•h = 24.84

11.6h+15.4t = 38.51
7.3h+10.2t = 24.84

h = 87/50 = 1.74
t = 119/100 = 1.19
