Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets s be for the number of single dip cones sold let d be the number of double dip cones sold The information give is that 60 total cones were sold s+d=60 price for each single = 2.50 price for each double = 4.15 total price = 179.70 2.50*s + 4.15*d=179.70  You have these 2 equations s+d=60 2.50*s + 4.15*d=179.70 solve for s and d

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To clear things up any further, the price for s number of single dip cones would be 2.50 * s as you pay 2.50 for each single dip so, if there are s of those, single dips then you pay 2.50 s times similiary price for all the double dip cones together is 4.15*d
