## partyrainbow276 3 years ago Demond has eight bills in his wallet that are worth a total of \$50. the bills are either \$ 5 bills or \$10 bills. How many \$5 bills does desmond have?

1. iCanHelp

It could be any order for this one.@Luis Rivera if you divide by 10 that would be 1 5 dollar bill but the question isn't asking to divide by ten. :P

2. partyrainbow276

So, r u saying its 1

3. benice

x+y=8 5x+10y=50

4. iCanHelp

I think that it would be 1 five dollar bill but I'm not really positive on that because it could be in any order :P

5. iCanHelp

@benice where did the 8 come from?

6. benice

you have eight bills made of x number of 5s and y number of tens

7. iCanHelp

x+y=8 5x+10y=50 hmm....how would you solve that? O.o

8. benice

x=6 y=2

9. partyrainbow276

Huh?

10. iCanHelp

I think benice is right. the other one would be a little confusing :P

11. iCanHelp

x+y=8 5x+10y=50 x=6 and y=2 x is 5 dollar bills y is 10 dollar bills

12. iCanHelp

nope thats not right... Check: 5(5) + 10(10) = 50 thats not right :P 25+100 doesnt equal 50 so this problem is confusing as butternots..O.o

13. iCanHelp

no wait thats right lol never mind I checked wrong!

14. partyrainbow276

what is the number

15. iCanHelp

so there are 6 Five dollar bills and 2 Ten dollar bills

16. iCanHelp

10+10+5+5+5+5+5+5=50

17. partyrainbow276

just one number

18. iCanHelp

Omg! Just get this: x+y=8 5x+10y=50 x=6 and y=2 x is 5 dollar bills y is 10 dollar bills ------------------------------------------------------- Just write all that down for this problem! -__-

19. iCanHelp

If you want just one number than put 6.

20. partyrainbow276

there not bubbling answer i have to write in the box small, skinny boxes write it in then bubble under

21. iCanHelp

Alright so put 6. because thats how many five dollar bills there would be.

22. iCanHelp

Dude @Luis Rivera it could be MANY different combinations but due to that equation shown by @benice it makes things easier for her. More equations will confuse her more, the answer is 6. and she's done come on now :P

23. partyrainbow276
