solution:: let the TOTAL number of the cuffs be X
let the TOTAL number of the COLLARS BE be 30-X

NOW FREDDY COLLECTS 1/2*X + 1/3*(30-X) = X/6 + 10
so charlie would collect 1/2*X + 2/3*(30-X) = -X/6 + 20

by inspection and trial and error we can see that X=12 ((( there is no other way)))

now putting X=12 in first equation we get 12 and puttin in eqn 2 we get 18
there fore freddy pays 27cents for 12 pieces
so charlie will pay ____ cents for his 18 pieces

THE ANSWER WILL BE 40.5 CENTS

10. Y X
Z Y I DON' REMEMBER THE FULL QN, BUT THE QN WAS TO FIND VALUES
X Z OF X Y Z. THE ANSWER IS X=9
