hmmm..... lets see

- amistre64

t is the standard for measuing the rest:
c = t+30
h = t+30+20 = t+50

- amistre64

amount times cost = total
t(1.05) + (t+30)(1.35) + (t+50)(2.25) = 202.50

multiply by 100 to get rid of decimals
105t +135t +135(30) + 225t +225(50) = 20250

- amistre64

465t = 20250 - 135(30) - 225(50)

- amistre64

\[t = \frac{20250 - 135(30) - 225(50)}{465}\]t

- amistre64

t=10.64 cups sold lol
c = 40.64
h = 60.64 if i did it right

I think I understand it , but I see where you went wrong because t+ 50 should've actually been t+ 10 . but thanks anyways ! it helped ! :)

- amistre64

10 40 and 60 gets you 199.50 total so its good

- amistre64

ahhh...youre right :) my stupidy got me again lol

- anonymous

lol , don't say that ! you figured it out even with the error ! :)

- amistre64

hahaha fools luck i spose :)

lol, yeah

105t +135t +135(30) + 225t +225(10) = 20250
465t = 20250 - 4050 - 2250
t = 13950/465
t = 30
c = 60
h = 40 are my new numbers :)
30(1.05) + 60(1.35) + 40(2.25) = 202.50
31.50 + 81.00 + 90.00 = 202.50
31.50 + 171.00 = 202.50
202.50 = 202.50....checks ;)
