Answer:Amount charged for downloading individual songs = x dollars

Amount charged for downloading an entire album = y dollars

In respect to person A:

6x + 2y = 25.92

3x + y = 12.96

y = 12.96 – 3x

In respect to person B:

4x + 3y = 33.93

Putting the value of y from the first equation in the second, we get

4x + 3(12.96 – 3x) = 33.93

4x + 38.88 – 9x = 33.93

– 5x = – 4.95

x = 0.99 dollars

Putting the value of x in the first equation, we get

y = 12.96 – 3x

= 12.96 – 2.97

= 9.99 dollars
