Answer: 6x + $2= $21.50Step-by-step explanation:To make an equation first we are going to give the cost of each taco the variable x since we don’t know what it is. Then we will combine 6 multiplied by x to get 6x and add it to $2 to get $21.50 so the equation will be 6x + $2= $21.50. First we subtract 2 from both sides of the equation which makes the equation become 6x= $19.50. Then we divide both sides of the equation by 6 and get x=$3.25. This means that each taco cost $3.25.
