Price of milk is $2.4 and price of magazine is $2.25
Total tax paid; 4.95-4.65 =$0.30 Let $x be the price of milk , then $(4.65-x) be the price of magazine. So $x \cdot 0.05 + \left(4.65 - x\right) \cdot 0.08 = 0.30 \mathmr{and} 0.05 x - 0.08 x + 0.372 = 0.3 \mathmr{and} 0.03 x = .072 \mathmr{and} x = \frac{.072}{0.03} = 2.4 \therefore 4.65 - 2.4 = 2.25$Hence price of milk is $2.4 and price of magazine is \$2.25#[Ans]
