$12 whole (x)

$8 for half (y)

400 dinners and took in 4200

4200=12x+8y

x+y=400

400-x=y

4200=12x+8(400-x)

4200=12x+3200-8x

simplify and you get          1000=4x  which is 250=x

then y is 150 

so 150 $8 halves

and 250 Wholes $12

then we check and see

4200=12(250)+8(150)

4200=3000+1200

wholes brought in 3000$ and halves brought in $1200
