2 x plus 3 y equals 26. X plus 4 y equals 18

Step-by-step explanation:

Number of tiles, = x

Number of pints of paint, = y

Store 1:

Cost per tile = $2 ; cost per pint =$3 ; total cost = $26 Store 2 : Cost per tile =$1 ; cost per pint = $4 ; total cost =$18

System of equation:

2x + 3y = 26 – – – (1)

x + 4y = 18 – – – – – (2)
