If necessary express quantities in decimal (not fraction) form.

Amount of Kenya beans needed = K pounds

Amount of French beans needed = F pounds

First equation: $$\displaystyle \ \to \ \$$ She bought a total of 8 pounds of coffee $$\displaystyle \ \to \ \$$ K + F = 8

Second equation: $$\displaystyle \ \to \ \$$ She bought for a total of \$ 51 $$\displaystyle \ \to \ \$$ ?
