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

I am not getting any of the above answers. Can anyone tell me which is the right one and why.

x + y = 3.59,

x + 2y = 4.40 => y = \$0.81 => 2y = \$1.62...

It is highly likely that this is a misprint in the numbers: 4.04 instead of 4.40 => y = \$0.45 => 2y = \$0.90, E.
