At a cafeteria, Mary orders two pieces of toast and a bagel, which comes out to $3.15. Gary orders a bagel and a muffin, which comes out to $3.50. Larry orders a piece of toast, two bagels, and three muffins, which comes out to $8.15. How many cents does one bagel cost?

toast = t

bagels = b

muffins = m

 

Use systems of equations. I'll help on the first part. Try finishing the rest yourself!

 

    t+2b+3m = 8.15

-  2t+b = 3.15

        b + m  = 3.50

---------------------------

   -t    +    2m = 1.50
