Yolanda has a gourmet coffee shop with two different types of coffee. Type A costs $5.95 per pound and Type B costs $7.00 per pound.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry i was afk first equation is correct good job 2nd one ` two times more of Type A than Type B` according to ur equation `x= type A` , `y= type B` so x is 2 times more than y equation would be `x=2y` `1st equation` \[\rm 5.95x+7y=56.7\] `2nd equation` \[\rm x=2y\] now i guess you can find x and y let me know if you need help
