    Answer/Step-by-step explanation:

    What we already know:

    Pizza slices $2.75 – Ice cream cones $2.25 – Tacos $1.75

    Total Items sold – 121 / Total amount of money – $260.75/ $87.50 made from selling Tacos

    ____________________________________

    Tacos – 87.5 ÷ 1.75 = 50 Tacos sold — 121 – 50 = 71 items

    & 260.75 – 87.5 = 173.25 left

    ____________________________________

    You can’t sell half an Ice-Cream

    Ice Cream – 71 – 1 = 70 — 70 ÷ 2 = 35 — 35 × 2.25 =

    $78.75 made from Ice-cream cones

    35 Ice- cream cones sold

    **************************************************

    Pizza slices – 71 – 70 = 1 — 1 + 35 =

    36 Pizza slices sold

    36 × 2.75 =

    99 dollars made off of Pizza slices
