Answer:

XXL = $19.75

Box of Breadstick = $3.5

Step-by-step explanation:

Given that:

Let :

cost per XXL pizza = x

Cost per box of bread stick = y

4x + 2y = 86 – – – (1)

6x + 4y = 132.50 – – – (2)

From (1): Divide (1) by (2)

2x + y = 43 – – – (3)

y = 43 – 2x

Substitute y = 43 – 2x into (2)

6x + 4(43 – 2x) = 132.50

6x + 172 – 8x = 132.50

-2x + 172 = 132.50

-2x = 132.50 – 172

-2x = – 39.50

x = $19.75

y = 43 – 2x

y = 43 – 2(19.75)

y = $3.5
