Solution(By Apex Team)

Total cost of 10 books = Rs. 120 Total cost of 8 books = Rs. 94 ⇒ The cost of 2 books = Rs. 26 Let the price of each book be x and y. ⇒ x + y = 26 – – – – – – (1) $\left(\Large\frac{160}{100}\right) x+y=26$ On Solving for y, we get y = 10 Now, Substituting y = 10 in (1) we get, x + 10 = 26 x = 16 So the price of each book is Rs. 16 and Rs. 10 respectively.
