Let x  be  the number of fruit pies  that Mr. Sanchez's class sold

Let 79 - x  be   the  bottles of   fruit juice that Mr. Kelly's class sold

So we  have

1.65x   + 1.36 ( 79  - x)  =  118.17      simplify

1.65x  + 107.44 - 1.36x  = 118.17

1.65x - 1.36x =   118.17 -  107.44

.29x  =  10.73      divide both sides by .29

x =  37    fruit pies sold

79 - 37 =  42  bottles of  fruit juice  sold

1.65 * 37  = \$61.05  =  what Mr. Sanchez's class made

118.17 - 61.05  = \$57.12  = what Mr. Kelly's class made

61.05 -  57.12  =   \$3.93    more
