The key club is working a concession stand at the school fair. They are selling cotton candy for $3.50 and soda for $1.50. At the end of the first shift they made $120. The club sold a total of 60 items. How much cotton candy and soda did they sell?

Equation:

 

Let c=cotton candy

      s=soda

 

---Equations---

 

s+c=60

3.5c+1.5s=120

 

3.5c+3.5s=210

3.5c+1.5s=120

 

2s=90

s=45

 

So, they sold 45 sodas and 15 cotton candies.

YUMMMMM!!!!
