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.

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.
