Let pen's cost be x and pencil's cost be y.

6x + 5y = 2.50

3x + 2y = 1.15

Thus, 3x = 1.15 - 2y

Therefore, 6x = 2.30 - 4y

Substituting the value of 6x ;

(2.30 - 4y) + 5y = 2.50

or, 2.30 + y = 2.50

=> y = 0.20.

Substituting the value of y ;

6x = 2.30 - 4(0.20)

6x = 2.30 - 0.80 = 1.5

6x = 1.5

=> x = 0.25

Thus, 1 pen costs 0.25 $ and 1 pencil costs 0.20$.

Thus, cost of one pen is 0.25$.

Cost of 4 pencils is 0.80 $

0.25$ + 0.80$ = 1.05$
