# Nine books

Nine books are to be bought by a student. Art books cost \$6.00 each and biology books cost \$6.50 each . If the total amount spent was \$56.00, how many of each book was bought?

a =  5
b =  4

### Step-by-step explanation:

a+b = 9
6a + 6.5b = 56.00

a+b = 9
6•a + 6.5•b = 56.00

a+b = 9
6a+6.5b = 56

a = 5
b = 4
