Lew spent $6.00 on one kind of cupcake and one kind of donut. How many donuts did he buy? 1) The price of 2 donuts is$0.10 less then price of 3 cupcakes
2) The arithmetic mean of 1 donut and 1 cupcake is $0.35 Can't I use equations: d+c=600 1) 2d=3c-10 -> d=3/2c-5 and substitute to get the price of d or c? 2) c+d=.35*2=$0.70 so d=.70-c , similar substitute?

I can find the price of a cupcake and a donut, but there is no information as to how many of each Lew bought.

Let Lew buy c cupcakes @ Pc & d donuts @ Pd.

c x Pc + d x Pd = 6

S1: 2Pd = 3Pc -0.10
Not sufficient.

S2: Pc + Pd = 0.70
Not sufficient.

S1 & S2:
Can find Pd and Pc,
as c and d aren't know.

A ---- > 2doughnuts = 3ccakes - 0.1
B -----> (d+c)/2 = .35 = d+c = .70 --- > d= .70 - c

substitute in A

2d=3c-.1 = 2(.70 - c) = 3c - .1
= 1.40 - 2c = 3c - .1
= 1.40 + .1 = 3c + 2c
= 1.41 = 5c
If you know C then you can know D .

Should be C.

I know the answer is E but why?
