@Yan Jie Chong \( \frac{($1.10-$1)}{2} \) this is a formula.when a question tells you total value of 2 items \( A \) and difference between their price \( B \),the value of the more expensive item is \( \frac {A+B}{2} \) and the value of the cheaper item is \( \frac {A-B}{2} \) Tan Li Xuan · 4 years, 3 months ago

@Arbër Avdullahu It's not a "hard" problem at all. Can be solved by setting some equations. Let x be the price of the ice cream and y be the price of the chip. We got a system of equations:

x + y = 1.1 (1) x - y = 1 (2)

Solve it by adding (x - y) to (x + y) and 0.1 to 1.1. We get 2x = 2.1 => x = 1.05. We get y = 0.05 by using the (1) equation. Đức Việt Lê · 4 years, 3 months ago
