Chen is bringing fruit and veggies to serve at an afternoon meeting. He spends a total of $28.70 on 5 pints of cut veggies and 7 pints of cut fruit. The food cost is modeled by the equation 5v + 7f = 28.70, where v represents the cost of one pint of cut veggies and f represents the cost of one pint of cut fruit. If the cost of each pint of fruit is $2.85, what is the approximate price of a pint of veggies? (Round to the nearest cent.)

The answer is $1.75 2.85 x's 7 is 19.95 so the total (28.70) minus that is 8.75 divided by 5 (the number of pints of veggies) leads you to 1.75
