We can write 2 equations for this word problem, one for the number of beverages and one for revenue. 

Let's let C = # of coffee drinks and T = # of tea drinks

For the number of beverages, we know that:

C + T = 92

For total revenue, we know that the cost will depend on how much of each beverage gets sold, so:

$2.20C + $1.80T = 192
