y = cost of sandwich

Equation: x + y = 56

But y = x + 8..since sandwich cost 8 more than the soft drink..

Substitute y to the equation:

x + (x + 8) = 56

2x + 8 = 56

2x = 56- 8

2x = 48

x = 48/2

x = 24 ...........COST OF SOFT DRINK

substitute the value of x to y = x + 8:

y = x + 8

= 24 + 8
