    T=1.05; C=1.35; Hc=2.25. C = Hc+20 ; C=T+30. Hc + 20 = T+30 sooo... Hc = T +30-20 Hc = T + 10 this is what I got so far :)

    (T+30)(1.35) + (T+10)(2.25) + T(1.05) = 202.50 If I did it right :)

    T(1.35 +2.25+1.05) +63 = 202.50 T(4.65) = 202.50 -63 T = 139.5/4.65 T = 30. There were 30 teas sold.
