5-88.

On Wednesdays at Tara's Taquería four tacos are the same price as three burritos. Last Wednesday the Lunch Bunch ordered five tacos and six burritos, and their total bill was $8.58 (with no tax or drinks included). Nobody in the Lunch Bunch can remember the cost of one of Tara's tacos. Help them figure it out. Homework Help ✎

Define two variables: Let *t* = the cost of a taco and *b* = the cost of a burrito.

Write two equations to describe the situation:

4*t* =3*b*

5*t* + 6*b* = 8.58

Solve the system of equations and answer the question. Check your work!
