Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose x is the parttime workers and y is the fulltime workers. x = (7/9) y the total employees is 160: x+y=160 (7/9)y+y = 160 (16/9)y=160 y=160(9/16) > y=90 then from x+y=160, we could get x=16090=70

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A computer consultant charges $250 for each hour of consultation and $175 for each hour of programming for clients. In 8 hours of work, she earned $1625. How much time did she spend on each activity?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose x = hours of consulation and y = hours of programming the total hours of work is 8, so x+y = 8 She earned $1625 , so: 250x + 175y = 1625 now we have 2 equations, solve those and you'll get x and y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02x3y=9 i usually find the x axis intersection and yaxis intersection first. at x=0 > y=3 , the point is (0, 3) at y=0> x=9/2 , the point is (9/2 , 0) then just connect both point
