Shanell’s Holiday Treats
|Shanell’s favorite hobby is baking cakes and cookies to serve her friends and family during holiday occasions. She often buys cashews, pecans, almonds, and walnuts to use in her recipes.|
One week, she bought one pound of cashews and two pounds of pecans, and paid $2.40. The next week she bought four pounds of almonds and one pound of cashews, paying $3.60. A week later she bought three pounds of walnuts, one pound of cashews and one pound of almonds for $2.10.
How much would she have to pay on her next trip to the grocery store, if she bought one pound of each of the four types of nuts?
