6-88.

On Wednesdays at Tara's Taqueria 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 ✎

First write two equations to describe the situation.

4t = 3b
5t + 6b = 8.58
