**A restaurant sells only two desserts,pie and cake.**

A piece of pie cost $4.

A piece of cake cost $5.

The restaurant sells 100 desserts,which cost a total of $473.

How many pieces of pie did they sell (HELP NEEDED FAST)

**Answer**

Let p and c be the pieces of pie and cake respectively.

We have p+ c= 100 (because the total number of pieces of pie and cake is 100).

On the other hand, we have $4p+ $5c= $473 or 4p+ 5c= 473 p+c=100 4p+5c=473 Solving the set of equations above, we p= 27, c=73.

They sold 27 pieces of pie~
