8-100.

A grocery store is offering a sale on bread and soup. Khalil buys four cans of soup and three loaves of bread for $$11.67$. Ronda buys eight cans of soup and one loaf of bread for$$12.89$.

1. Write equations for both Khalil’s and Ronda’s purchases.

Let $S$ stand for price of a can of soup and $B$ price of a loaf of bread.

Khalil: $4S + 3B = 11.67$

Ronda: $8S + 1B = 12.89$

2. Solve the system to find the price of one can of soup and the price of one loaf of bread.
