#### Solution

**Rs. 10, Rs. 16**

**Explanation:**

Total Price of 10 pen = 12 × 10 = 120

Price of 8 pen = 11.75 × 8 – 94.00

Price of Remaining 2 Pen = 120 – 94 = 26

Let Price of 1st pen = x

Price of 2^{nd }pen `=160/100"x"`

`"x"+160/100"x"=26`

`260/100"x"=26`

x = 10,

`160/100xx10=16`

10 and 16
