answer: options?

step-by-step explanation:

The labor fee is $13.55 and each quart of oil is $2.25

Step-by-step explanation:

Let,

x be the amount of each quart of oil

y be the amount of labor fee

According to given statement;

5x+y=24.80        Eqn 1

7x+y=29.30        Eqn 2

Subtracting Eqn 1 from Eqn 2

(7x+y)-(5x+y)=29.30-24.80\\7x+y-5x-y=4.50\\2x=4.50

Dividing both sides by 2

\frac{2x}{2}=\frac{4.50}{2}\\x=2.25

Putting x=2.25 in Eqn 1

5(2.25)+y=24.80\\11.25+y=24.80\\y=24.80-11.25\\y=13.55

The labor fee is $13.55 and each quart of oil is $2.25
