Mark and Nancy are making punch for a party and are using two types of juice: pineapple and papaya. The total number of quarts must be more than 9 but less than 15. They should use at least 4 quarts of each type. We want to find out how many quarts of each juice they should buy.
List any 3 ordered pair solutions for the system of equations which represent this problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2point to note : Is it possible to take fractional quarts of either mango or papaya ?...Generally no! So we proceed to find sent of ordered pair of integers (a,b) with a being the number of quarts of 1st fruit and b being the second.. fix a=4 , u will get b= 6,7,8,9,10 i.e possible pairs may be (4,6) , (4,7) .....etc

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then u can fix a=5 you will get b = 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 a=6 will give you b= 4,5,6,7,8 a=7will give you b= 3,4,5,6,7 and so on u can do upto a=10 (why? because b has to be atleast 4 so to keep ur sum a+b less than 15 you CANNOT go beyond a=10)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2say a is the number of pineapple quarts and b , the number of papaya quarts according to ur problem ..so if u need to find any solution , then any one of the pairs will do..say I choose (4,6) ; meaning a=4 and b=6
