Eastland College is concerned about the rising price of textbooks that students must
purchase. To better identify the increase in the price of textbooks, the dean asks you,
the Economics Department's star student, to create an index of textbook prices. The
average student purchases three English, two math, and four economics textbooks.
The prices of these books are given in the accompanying table.
