Bloomington Nail Salon is having a special this month on services. Over the weekend, they performed 49 manicures and 16 pedicures, bringing in a total of $1,184 in receipts. So far this week, they have administered 31 manicures and 33 pedicures, with receipts totalling $1,321. How much does the salon charge for each service?

Hello Guest!

 

\(49m+16p=\$1184 \)    | * 31

\(31m+33p=\$1321\)    | * 49

 \(1519m+\ 496p=\$36704\)

\(\underline{1519m+1617p=\$64729} \) 

                 \(1121p=\$28025\)

                          \(p=\$25\)

 

\(49m+16p=\$1184\\ 49m+16\cdot \$25=\$1148\\ 49m=\$1148-\$400\\ 49m=\$748 \)  

\(m=\$15.27\)

 

The price for manicure is $15.27.

The price for pedicure is $25.
