either the answers choices are messed up or I am missing something !

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 What do u guys say ?

At a certain diner, a hamburger and coleslaw cost $3.59, H + C = 3.59 ------>1 and a hamburger and french fries cost$4.40.

H + F = 4.40 -------->2

2 - 1 gives

F - C = 4.40 - 3.59 = 0.81

If french fries cost twice as much as coleslaw,
i.e F = 2C

2C - C = 0.81

=> C= 0.81

how much do french fries cost?

Since F = 2C = 2 (0.81) = 1.62

Choices are Wrong

(A) $0.30 (B)$0.45
(C) $0.60 (D)$0.75
(E) \$0.90
