Hey <soonteck_01>

My worked solution is as follows:

Apply <Assume ALL> method, we have ...

Assume all Gifts cost \$10 each (Gift A),

10 × 27 = \$270

D1: 270 - 230 = 40
D2: 10 - 8 = 2

D1 ÷ D2 = 40 ÷ 2 = 20 (of \$8 Gift B )

27 - 20 = 7 (of \$10 Gift A)

Hence, Lixin should buy 7 Gift A and 20 Gift B.

=========

Alternatively the usual <Guess & Check > method can be used too.

Trust this helps.

Do let me know again if it's different from your <Answerkey> or if there's further clarification.

Cheers,
Edward
