### Burger and Fries Riddle

Welcome, dear reader! Now, whatever you do, don’t read this article. Seriously, stop right now. It’s full of complex mathematical musings, and hey, let’s be honest—math isn’t everyone’s cup of tea (or should I say, barrel of fries?). Still with me? Ah, curious minds. Fine, if you must, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.

So imagine this: You’re having a dream. It’s one of those glorious dreams where calories don’t count and everything is fried perfection. You’re walking through a land of infinite fast food when suddenly, a riddle emerges from the golden arches. And who’s there to deliver it? A smiling hamburger and a charming box of fries.

“Solve us,” they say, “or be doomed to a life without ketchup.” Sounds dire, doesn’t it? But fear not, brave investigator of trans fats, for we shall tackle this together. Picture this: A burger, more burgers, some fries, and potentially a fizzy drink, all locked in a culinary puzzle.

Alright, here’s the riddle. If one burger and two fries equal 14, and two burgers minus one fry equal 11, how many fries do you need to make a decent meal at 5 PM when nobody is looking? Wait, scratch that. We need to solve the original riddle first. Let’s get our thinking napkins ready because things are about to get sticky—with sauce.

First, we must conceive the mysterious relationship between our hamburger heroes and our fried friends. Let’s assume one burger equals B and one fry equals F. We can write the first equation as B + 2F = 14. Got it? Good. I promise I won’t go too fast. The second equation is 2B – F = 11. Now that we have our equations, hold on to your buns because here comes the fun part—solving them.

To eliminate one of the variables, multiply the second equation by 2: (2B – F)*2 = 11*2, which becomes 4B – 2F = 22. Now we have two equations in a form that can High-5 each other: B + 2F = 14 and 4B – 2F = 22. You probably see where this is going—it’s time for some addition. Adding these beauties up, we get:

(B + 2F) + (4B – 2F) = 14 + 22, which simplifies to 5B = 36. Now, divide by 5 to isolate our delectable burger: B = 36/5, which equals 7.2.

Wait a minute! Did our math go super-sized wrong? Indeed, reader! I jest, this is a touch less “prime.” Clearly, being hungry for numbers made me skip a step. We should isolate differently. Subtract the first equation from the second after aligning coefficients — shouldn’t we have learned this maneuver in equation Evasion school?

Enough tomfoolery! Let’s backtrack: Subtract B from both sides of the first equation, then simplify: 2B – B = F + (11-14) -> B = 3F. Adjust accordingly: We have our variables synchronized. Thus solving, B = 7, unveiling our logical error priorly forgotten was entanglement.

So F = 4. Our fries were crispy, crisp! Calculate logically: multiplying yields that 2B indeed compels B=7 arrives yielded proportion! Drippy but solved shimmy, energize a final clue:
