lunch. The Browns bought 4 cheeseburgers and 3 medium fries for $16.53. The Greens bought 5
cheeseburgers and 4 medium fries for $21.11.
Using c for the cost of a cheeseburger and f for the cost of medium fries, write a system of
equations that models this situation.

order of medium fries must cost $2.87 each. Are they correct? Justify your answer.
Using your equations, algebraically determine both the cost of one cheeseburger and the cost of
one order of medium fries.
