I went to my favorite taco stand with some friends. Between us we bought 6 tacos and 2 burritos, and I noticed that the ratio of the amount we spent on tacos to the amount we spent on burritos was 7:4. Later we went back and bought 4 tacos and 3 burritos and spent 1 dollar less. How much money did we spend that time?

This problem leads to a negative price for tacos.  If you ever find this please let me know.

4 Dollars spent. Tacos are 70 cents each, burritos are 40 cents each

The problem says the ratio of the amount they spent on tacos, 6T, to the amount they spent on burritos, 2B, is 7:4.

 

You have the ratio of the price of tacos, to the price of burritos as 7:4.

 

I suppose it's a poorly worded problem.
