Hi.
"Jane bought 5kg of grapes and 10kg of cherries at $82.50."
5*x + 10*y = 82.50 (1), where x is the price of grapes/kg; y price of 1kg cherries.
"If Jane were to buy 10kg of grapes and 5kg of cherries, she would only pay $75"
10*x+5y = 75 (2)
"If 100grams of grapes cost 45 cents, find the cost of 1kg of cherries."
1kg grapes cost 10*0.45 = $4.5 = x. Now substitute this into (1) and (2), you get y=$6, so 1kg of cherries cost $6
Any questions?
Yours
