At Ricardo's Tacos, four tacos and two orders of chips cost the same as two tacos and four orders of chips. If Ricardo's charges $2.00 for a single order of chips, how much does Ricardo's charge for 1 taco?

Let   T  be the cost of a single taco

 

We have this

 

4T + 2(2.00)  = 2(T)  + 4(2.00)     simplify

 

4T  +  4  = 2T  +   8            subtract  4, 2T  from both sides

 

2T    = 4                   divide both sides  by   2

 

T  =  2     →     one taco costs   $2
