At a cafeteria, Mary orders two pieces of toast and a bagel, which comes out to $3.15. Gary orders a bagel and a muffin, which comes out to $3.50. Larry orders a piece of toast, two bagels, and three muffins, which comes out to $8.15. How many cents does one bagel cost?

Hello! I'm going to help with the first part so that you can finish the rest of this problem yorself. I suggest using system of equations.

toast = t

bagel = b

muffin = m

t+2b+3m = 8.15

- 3t+b = 3.15

b + m = 3.50

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

-2t + 2m = 1.5

Now, we have eliminated one variable. Find two equations to eliminate the second variable so you can easily find the answer.
