Justin got pepperoni, banana peppers, and black olives on his pizza for a cost of $7.49. Jake ordered mushrooms and eggplant on his pizza and paid $6.99. Using this information, how much did each topping cost? And what does a plain pizza cost with no extra toppings?

If we assume all of the toppings are the same price

 

3 toppings = 3t       plain pizza = p 

 

3t +p = 7.49

2t+p = 6.99     subtract 2nd equation from first

t = .50     (50 cents)

 

2t+p = 6.49

2(.5) + p = 6.49

p = 5.49
