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

According to me it is H+C=3.59 and H+F=4.40 =H+2C
C=.89 so F =1.68 but the answer says 0.90??????

1
hamburger - x
coleslaw - y
french fries - 2y

x+y=3.59 => x=3.59-y
x+2y=4.40

Hence,
3.59-y+2y=4.40
y=4.40-3.59=0.81

Therefore, french fries (2y) cost \$1.62
