Here,
Glass lense cost= x
plastic lense cost= 4x
So,
4x-x= 12
3x= 12
x= 4

glass lenses cost= 4

Let Glass lenses cost be x
Plastic lenses cost= 4x
Now, 4x-x= 42-30= 12
3x= 12
x=4
So Glass lenses cost= $4

Answer: B.

Kudos please if you like my explanation!

An oculist charges $30.00 for an eye examination, frames, and glass lenses, but $42.00 for an eye examination, frames, and plastic lenses. If the plastic lenses cost four times as much as the glass lenses, how much do the glass lenses cost?

A. $2
B. $4
C. $5
D. $6
E. $8


Let cost of eye examination = E
Frames = F
glass lenses = G
plastic lenses = P

E+F+G = 30
E+F+P = 42
P = 4G
P-G = 12
G = 4

Answer B

A. $2
B. $4
C. $5
D. $6
E. $8


We can let e = the cost for the exam, f = the cost for the frames, g = the cost for the glass lenses, and p = the cost for the plastic lenses. We can create two equations:

30 = e + f + g

and

42 = e + f + p

Subtracting the first equation from the second, we have:

12 = p - g

We also know that p = 4g; thus:

12 = 4g - g

12 = 3g

4 = g

Answer: B
