Solve each problem using system of equations.

At an ice cream parlor, ice cream cones cost $1.10 and sudaes cost$2.35. One day, the receipts for a total of 172 cones and sundaes were \$294.20. How many cones were sold?

2. let C = number of cones sold
S = number of sundaes sold

C + S = 172

C(1.10) + S(2.35) = 294.20

solve the system using the method taught to you in class.

3. thanks for helping set up the system but my teacher is pretty much terrible and I couldn't understand how to solve a system like this using substitution how would i solve using substitution?

4. C + S = 172

S = 172 - C

C(1.10) + (172 - C)(2.35) = 294.20

solve for C

5. how many cones sold?
