Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let x=number of hot dogs, y=number of bags of potato chips. 4x+5y=12, 3x+4y=9.25. solve these equations simultaneously :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets say one hot dog costs x dollars lets say one bag of potato chips costs y dollars. 4 hot dogs cost 4x dollars. 5 bags of chips cost 5y dollars. 4 hot dogs and 5 bags of chips together cost 12 dollars. so, 4x+5y = 12. similarly get the other part in the form of an equation too and solve it for x and y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0better assignment of the variables. Letting x = cost, rather than number of dogs and chips. That is already known.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you dont know how to solve x+y = 5 xy = 1 for x and y?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then what is the problem? those are simultaneous equations.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok good. so if one hot dog costs x dollars, how much will 4 hot dogs cost?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0answer the question. you dont know how much each hot dog costs. So lets say we assign the variable x to the cost of each hot dog. so one hot dog costs x amount of dollars. suppose you went to the store and purchased one hot dog for x amount of dollars, how much would you have to pay to buy 2 hot dogs?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you sure? that is the cost of one hot dog. what is the cost of 2 hot dogs?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you gave x dollars to purchase one hot dog. you have to give another x dollars to purchase one more hot dog. Is that correct or not?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so to purchase 2 hot dogs, you gave x dollars + another x dollars. so that is 2 times x dollars. Is that correct or not?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how many x dollars do you need to give to purchase 4 hot dogs?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay good. so to purchase 4 hot dogs you have to give 4x dollars. similarly, say one bag of chips costs y dollars. how much does it cost to purchase 5 bags of chips?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you please help me with another problem

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0didn't I just explain this to you? you purchase one bag of chips for y dollars. you have to give another y dollars to purchase one more bag of chips. so how many dollars do you have to give to purchase 5 bags?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a university theater sold 556 tickets for a play, tickets cost $22 per adult tickets and $ 12 for senior citizen ticket, if the total receipt was 8492, how many senior citizen ticket were sold

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let say there are a certain number of adult tickets and a certain number of senior citizen tickets. let us say there are A number of adult tickets and S number of senior citizen tickets.

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0total number of tickets is 556. so A+S =556. each adult ticket costs 22 dollars. so A number of adult tickets cost 22 times A amount of dollars. each senior citizen ticket costs 12 dollars. so S number of senior citizen tickets cost 12 times S amount of dollars. so, 22A+12S =8492. so you have two equations. A+S =556 22A +12S =8492. solve to get S and A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because you said 22A PLUS 12S = 8492

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so when we add A+S IT WILL BE 34, ARE WE DIVIDING IT WITH ANYTHING

anonymous
 5 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why is A+S = 34? don't you remember what we assigned the variable A to? A is the NUMBER of adult tickets, NOT the price of each adult ticket. we already know the price is 22.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are welcome. :) think about these things logically. put yourself in the position of the problem and see what you would do in that situation. what if you were the manager of the theater and you had 556 tickets? what if you made 8492 dollars. How many adult tickets did you sell at 22 dollars per ticket and so on.
