Answer:$2.6 for 25 pound bag; $2.8 for 30 pound bag Step-by-step explanation: To figure out the cost per pound, you need to divide the cost by the total number of pounds. So, for the 25 pound bag, divide 65 by 25 to get$2.6. For the 30 pound bag, divide 84 by 30 to get 2.8.

Step-by-step explanation:

12 x + 4 y = 42 ………….1

16 x + 8 y = 64 ………….2

Eliminate y

multiply (1)by -2

Multiply (2) by 1

-24 x -8 y = -84

16 x 8 y = 64
