Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You set up the systems of equations like this: 135= 6j + 1w 110= 4j +2w Then you multiply the top equation by 2 (just multiply both sides by 2) 270=12j+2w Subtract the bottom equation from this 270110= (12j+2w) (4J+2w) 160=8j j=20 Then substitute back in to solve for the water. 110= 4(20) + 2w 30= 2w w=15 The price for a case of bottled water was 15$ and the price for a case of juice was 20$ Hope this helps!
