Cost of Squash = s cost of 5 squash = 5s

5s + 2z = 132

3s+ z = 75 Multiply through by -2 to make this equation equal to:

-6s -2z=-150 now add top and bottom equations

-s = -18 s = 18 cents

Substitute in this value of s into one of the equations to find z

3s + z = 75

3(18) + z = 75

z = 21 cents
