At a certain diner, a hamburger and coleslaw cost $3.59, and a hamburger and french fries cost$4.40. If french fries cost twice as much as coleslaw, how much do french fries cost?
(A) $0.30 (B)$0.45
(C) $0.60 (D)$0.75
(E) $0.90 I am not getting any of the above answers. Can anyone tell me which is the right one and why. Senior Manager Joined: 05 Feb 2004 Posts: 290 Location: USA Followers: 1 Kudos [?]: 3 [0], given: 0 [#permalink] 20 Jun 2004, 02:44$1.62 SHUD BE THE ANSWER!!

(E) $0.90 I am not getting any of the above answers. Can anyone tell me which is the right one and why. x + y = 3.59, x + 2y = 4.40 => y =$0.81 => 2y = $1.62... It is highly likely that this is a misprint in the numbers: 4.04 instead of 4.40 => y =$0.45 => 2y = $0.90, E. Re: French fries.
