#### Answer

printer = \$ 44
Notebook computer = \$ 352

#### Work Step by Step

Let the Jason paid amount for his printer be x
He paid eight times as much for his notebook computer as he did for his printer = 8x
Total of both the items = \$396
So, x + 8x = 396
Solve the equation
x + 8x = 396
9x = 396
Divide both the sides by 9
$\frac{9x}{9}$ = $\frac{396}{9}$
x = 44
So Jason paid \$ 44 for his printer and
He paid for notebook computer = 8 * 44 = $ 352
