Second Order is for \$72,000
8 model II, 3 model VI, 5 model IX

Set up a system of equations.

Let x=price of Model II
Let y=price of Model VI
Let z=price of Model IX

4x+6y+10z=114,000
8x+3y+5z=72,000
2x+9y+5z=81,000

Solve the system. When you find the value of y, that is the price of the Model VI.
