    Answer:

    The cost of one canteen is $7.5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We are given the following in the question:

    Each brother purchase a new par of boots and two canteens.

    Cost of one hiking boots = $34.00

    Total cost of hiking boots =

    =34\times 2\\=\$68.00

    Let x dollars be the cost of one canteen.

    Number of canteens bought by both brother = 4

    Total bill = $98.00

    Thus, we can write the equation:

    68 + 4x = 98

    Solving the equation, we get,

    68 + 4x = 98\\4x = 98-68\\4x = 30\\x = 7.5

    Thus, the cost of one canteen is $7.5
