My local cafe sells only 2 items,but it's great value because you can buy one of each for only £2.I treated my friends and myself to one thing from each menu.We spent a total of £7 on pizza's and £9 on burgers.The next week we returned and everyone ordered something different.The bill was 4 times more expensive.

So your first trip must break down something like this -
n1 * p = 7
n2 * b = 9
p + b = 2

If the bill then quadruples when everyone swaps their orders
then:
(n1 * b ) + (n2 * p) = 64

I then made an assumption that you have an integer number of friends (no fractional mates along for the pizza and burger fest).
