A party rental company has chairs and tables for rent. The total cost to rent 6 chairs and 2 tables is 24 dollars. The total cost to rent 3 chairs and 5 tables is 45 dollars. What is the cost to rent each chair and each table?

chair is x, table is y.

 

6x+2y= 24

3x+5y= 45

 

multiply second equation by 2

 

6x+10y= 90

 

subtract to get: 8y = 66, thus y = 33/4 dollars and substituting back x = 5/4 dollars

 

sub back to get answer
