#### Solution

Let A be the matrix of pens and notebooks and B be the matrix od prices of one pen and one notebook.
Pens Notebooks
∴ A = [(4, 8),(5, 12)]"jay"/"Ram"

and B = [(6),(10)]"Pen"/"Notebook"

The total amount required for each one of them is obtained by matrix AB.

∴ AB = [(4, 8),(5, 12)][(6),(10)]

= [(24 + 80),(30 + 120)]

= [(104),(150)]
∴ Jay needs ₹ 104 and Ram needs ₹ 150.
