bcuz it would make life so much easier
i think its 80 for a and 40 for b
SO what you do is try and figure out how much each Brand contains in cranberry juice in a fraction where 120 gal is the denominator.
So A has 66/20
B has 84/120
You make an equation then
A(66/230)+ B(84/120)= 72/120
72/120 is 3/5
A and B in the equation are our variables, or the things we can change or that can change.
You then use substitution
Sorry the value next to A in the equation is 66/120 not 66/230. I Dnt Know what I was thinking.
So you simplify what A equals
since you are dividing by fractions it is the same as saying
A=(-B(84/120)+72/120) times 120/66
why is b negative
So what you do is substitute what you found A to be in terms of B into the equation. You then only have B as a variable in the equation. Solve for B. Now you still d0on't know what A is exactly in numbers. Plug in the exact value for B.
wait was my answer correct? im honestly so confused
You plug B into one of the equations you have that involve the variable A. You probably want to use the one that has A equals something, because you already have A isolated.
A=-B(84/66) + (72/66) The 120s cancel
Then you could plug what A equals into the equation
A(66/120) + B(84/120)=72/120
(-B(84/66)+ (72/66)) (66/120) + B(84/120)=72/120
You distribute the 66/120 and get
Ummmmnh I just realized that I must be solving it wrong. Because the equation that I last gave you comes out to
0=0, which is true, but not what we need.
