At the circus, 2 sticks of fairy floss cost the same as 3 lollipops.
If Samaira buys 1 stick of fairy floss, she will have Rs 1.50 left over. If Samaira buys 1 lollipop, she will have Rs 2 left over.
How much money does Samaira have?

Let X = price of a fairy floss and Y = price of a lollipops
Then we can write two equations
2 x X = 3 x Y (1)
X + 1,50 = Y + 2 ( 2)

By solving the system of two equations Y = 1 and X = 3/2
Then total money = 1 x 3 or 2 x 3/2 equal to 3 rs
