    Let C = cost to rent each chair

    Let T = cost to rent each table

    4C + 8T = 73

    2C + 3T = 28

    Multiply the 2nd equation by (-2) and then add the equations together

    4C + 8T = 73

    -4C – 6T = -56

    2T = 17

    T = 17/2 = 8.5

    Plug this in to the 1st equation to solve for C

    4C + 8(17/2) = 73

    4C + 68 = 73

    4C = 5

    C = 5/4 = 1.25

    So the cost to rent each chair is $1.25 and the cost to rent each table is $8.50
