    v + c = 27 --- there are 27 vanilla and choco packs of wafers 4v + 1c = 45 -- $4 for each v bought + $1 for each c bought = $45 these are your 2 equations that you will use....do you need help in solving these now ?

    v + c = 27 v = 27 - c now sub in 27 - c in for v back into the other equation 4v + 1c = 45 4(27 - c) + 1c = 45 --- so basically, you distribute through the parenthesis and then solve for c. Once c is found, sub that value back into v + c = 27 to find v
