At a certain diner, a hamburger (H) and coleslaw (C) cost [#permalink]  24 Aug 2003, 04:19
At a certain diner, a hamburger (H) and coleslaw (C) cost $3.59, and a hamburger and french fries (F) 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 here is my way. H+C=3.59 H+F=4.40 F=2C then i have two equation: H+C=3.59 H+2C=4.40 which is solved like: H=3.59-C 3.59-C+2C=4.40 C=0.81 but multiplying 0.81 by 2 gives us 1.62, which is not stated among choices. this time, am i wrong or our chinese friends from down3.net are?
