    Linear Equations, ASAP

    I was sick with the flu for a week, I would really appreciate your help with this problem:

    At a store, ice cream cones cost $0.90 and sundaes cost $1.65. One day the receipts for a total of 150 cones and sundaes were $181.50. How many cones were sold? How many sundaes?

    This is my friend and my own expression for this problem:

    $ 181.5 = X(0.9) + Y(1.65)
    C 150 = X + Y

    We would like a confirmation on our work so far and the method to solve the linear equations. Thanks
