Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x+y=23, 3x+2y = 55 x + y = 55, 3x + 2y = 55 x+y=23, 2x+3y= 55 x+y=55, 2x+3y =23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0secondly, 2x+3y, represents the cost of the pieces, and since they mentioned the amount of the sale is 55, it is 2x+3y=55
