A group of students go to the store to buy school supplies.

If they buy three binders and four notebooks, the bill will be $4.85.

If they buy three binders and ten notebooks, the bill will be $8.75.

What is the cost of each binder and notebook?

Let b = cost of one binder, and n = cost of one notebook

3b + 10n = 875

3b + 4n = 485

----------------------

6n = 390

n = 65

3b + 4n = 485

3b + 4(65) = 485

3b + 260 = 485

3b = 225

b = 75

Notebooks cost 65 cents and binders cost 75 cents :)
