You are selling hot dogs and sodas. Each hot dog costs $1.50 and each soda costs $0.50. At the end of the night you made a total of $78.50. You sold a total of 87 hot dogs and sodas combined. How many hot dogs were sold and how many sodas were sold?

h = hot dogs            money from hot dogs   =   $1.50 h

87 - h = sodas         money from sodas       =   $ .5 (87-h)        add money amount to total 78.50

 

1.50 h       +    .5 (87-h)       =  78.50      solve for 'h' the number of hot dogs   then sodas =  87-h
