#### Explanation:

The general equation would be:

$P = 14.95 c + 39.99 v$

Where,

• $c$ is the number of CD's bought
• $v$ is the number of video games bought
• $P$ is the total price

Since you did not give any specific amounts of Cd's or video games
bought I cannot give you a price. However if you wanted to know, you just have to pick numbers for $c$ and $v$ and just add.

For example:

Say I bought 3 CD's and $2$ video games

So in this case $c = 3$ and $v = 2$

We'll substitute these values into the equation and fins the total price:

$P = 14.95 \left(3\right) + 39.99 \left(2\right)$

$P = 44.85 + 79.98$

$P = 124.83$

So the the total cost of $3$ CD's and $2$ video games is \$124.83
