    Answer:
    There are 9 lilies and 4 tulips.
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Step One: Create Let Statements
    Let x= the number of lilies
    Let 13-x= the number of tulips
    Step Two: Create an Equation
    14.85=1.25x+.90(13-x) 
    Distribute 14.85=1.25x+11.7-.90x 
    Combine like terms 14.85=11.7+0.35x
    Subtract 11.7 from both sides 3.15=0.35x 
    Divide both sides by 0.359=x
    There are 9 lilies and 4 tulips.
