Solve these on your own using the substitution method or the addition method. Objective 1: Applications Involving Cost Ex 1) Kathleen sells two sizes of a handmade craft at a kiosk in a mall. The small size costs $5 and the large size costs $12. If Kathleen sells a total of 105 items during a particular week and has a total revenue of $826 for that week, how many of each type did she sell? Ex 2) Ronald bought 3 hamburgers and 2 orders of fries for his family and paid $8.25. Leon bought 5 hamburgers and 4 orders of fries for his family and paid $14.61. What was the cost of one hamburger? What was the cost of one order of fries? Ex 3) Janice has 3 less dimes than nickels. The total value of her dimes and nickels is $4.80.
