Answer:

Kindly check explanation

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the following :

Selling price of bags of gold fish(f) = $3

Selling price of bags of animal crackers (a) = $3.50

Selling price of bags of gummies(g) = $4

Sales on a particular day:

Total snack sold = 15

Total price of sales = $53

Two more bags of ‘a’ were sold than ‘f’ ; hence ‘a’ = 2 + f

f + a + g = 15 ;

f + 2 + f + g = 15 ; 2f + g = 15 – 2 ;

2f +g = 13 – – (1)

3f + 3.5a + 4g = 53

3f + 3.5(2 + f) + 4g = 53

3f + 7 + 3.5f + 4g = 53

6.5f + 4g = 46 – – – (2)

From (1)

g = 13 – 2f

6.5f + 4(13 – 2f) = 46

6.5f + 52 – 8f = 46

-1.5f = – 6

f = 4

g = 13 – 2(4)

g = 13 – 8

g = 5

a = 2 + f

a = 2 + 4

a = 6
