Six lollipops and four candy bars cost \$0.88. However, six candy bars and four lollipops cost \$0.92.

How much will 10 of each cost?

Easy. 2 variables and 2 equations (or just look at the problem and add the 2 equations together).
Lollipops = .08 ea x 10 = 80 cents
candy bars = .10 ea x 10 = 1.00
\$1.80 total.

Simple algebra

10 Candy Bars = \$1.00
10 Lollipops = \$.80

Use first equation for solve for C in terms of L, plug that value in place of C in the other equation, solve for L. Plug the value of L into the first equation, solve for C.

Or if you dont care how much each costs, just ad the equations together and you get the total for 10 of each.
