Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and some other Gryffindors are planning an after-party for the next quiddich game. After polling her fellow Gryffindors, Hermione has learned that they like Chocolate Frogs and Bertie Bott's Every Flavored Beans. When Ron went to the store, he saw that the Frogs were 1 Galleon each (or $4.93) and the boxes of Beans were 12 Sickles and 2 Knuts($3.50). If he bought 10 things for $43.58, how many of each type did he purchase?

I had too much fun with this. No, those are not the in-book prices for the candies, but I did convert the Wizard Currency to Muggle Currency using a defined system.
