Hey Guest!

Thank you for asking me specifically but as sparkling water said, you don't need to ask for a certain person.

I'm not quite sure how to approach this problem but this is my best attempt: so each cupcake costs twice as much as a sardine pie, therefore c=2s (c represents cupcake and s represents sardine pie) so the cost of 2 cupcakes and 8 sardine pies is the same as the cost of 12 sardine pies. She then spent 3/4 of her remaining money which is 3/4 of the 4/7 left. This amount is the same as 1/7 of the original amount. The question says that pandan cakes cost 4.50 more than cupcakes but gives no clue as to the other prices. This leaves me at a dead end. You could instead change to amount of sardine pies into cupcakes so the cost of 2 cupcakes and 8 sardine pies is the same as the cost of 6 cupcakes but this still doesn't help us.

Could someone else try this question? I am new to this website and I do not have a great knowledge of maths so someone else here might be able to help.
