    Answer: B

    Step-by-step explanation:

    y = azaleas

    x = lilies

    6y + 5x =196 total cost

    y + x = 36 total number of items

    y = 36 – x


    6(36 -x ) +5x =196

    216 – 6x + 5x = 196

    -x = 196 – 216

    -x = -20

    Divide by -1

    X = 20 lilies

    Plug into y equation

    Y = 36 – 20

    Y= 16 azaleas


    To check

    6(16) + 5(20) = 196

    96 + 100 = 196
