1The student council at Jefferson High School sold a total of 220 brownies and cookies during its fund-raiser. Each brownie sold for $0.75, and each cookie sold for $0.50. The student council made $136.50 from the sales of brownies and cookies. Which system of linear equations can be used to find b, the number of brownies sold, and c, the number of cookies sold?
Ab + c = 220
0.50b + 0.75c = 136.50
Bb + c = 136.50
0.75b + 0.50c = 220
Cb + c = 136.50
0.50b + 0.75c = 220
Db + c = 220
0.75b + 0.50c = 136.50
