my ans isnt matching any of the choices. the ans in the solu is E. please explain if u can solve this.

Given:
$$h+c=3.59$$, $$h+f=4.4$$ and $$f=2c$$. Q: $$f=?$$

Subtract 1 from 2: $$h+f-h-c=4.4-3.59$$ --> $$f-c=0.81$$, as $$f=2c$$, then $$f-\frac{f}{2}=0.81$$ --> $$f=1.62$$.

Not a good question.

This problem was posted in 2,003 and it has been removed. It was wrong. I think that the problem is in the cost $3.59. It should be$3.95.
That way the problem would be correct.
