    2p + 2d = 12.50

    2p = 12.50 - 2d

    p = 6.25 - d

    6d + 5p = 33.75

    6d + 5 (6.25 - d) = 33.75

    6d + 31.25 - 5d = 33.75

    d = 2.50

    2p + 2d = 12.50

    2p + 2 (2.50) = 12.50

    2p + 5 = 12.50

    2p = 7.50

    p = 3.75

    One popcorn is $3.75 and one drink is $2.50
