    Answer:

    Cost of Turkey per pound is $ 1.25 and Ham is $ 1.65.  

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Cindy:

    cost of 12.3 pound Turkey and 11.7 pound Ham = $ 34.68

    Samantha:

    cost of 10.7 pound Turkey and 9.5 pound Ham = $ 29.05

    Let the cost of one pound of Turkey is T and one pound of Ham is H.

    So,

    12.3 T + 11.7 H = 34.68 ….. (1)

    10.7 T + 9.5 H = 29.05 ……(2)

    Solve both these equations, we get

    T = $ 1.25 and H =  $ 1.65
