Joel bought 2 notebooks, 3 pencils, and 6 files for $12.70. The cost of 1 pencil and 2 files is 4. What is the cost of 1 notebook?

Let's assume notebook = n, pencils = p, and files = f

2n+3p+6f = $12.70

1p+2f = $4

We know that 1p+2f = 4$ so that means that 2p+4f = 8$ and 3p+6f = 12$.

As you can see 3p+6f = 12$ so we can subtract that from the 2n+3p+6f = $12.70 which we get

2n = $.70

Therefore n = $.35

Hope this helps!
