Mickey sold two types of calendars for her club. She sold a total of 64 calendars for $140.50. One type of calendar sold for $2.50 each, and the other sold for $1.75 each.
1. How many of the $2.50 calendars did she sell?
2. How many of the $1.75 calendars did she sell?

Let us suppose he is sold x number of one type of calendar @ a price of $2.50 so he sold (64x) number of calenders @ a price of $ 1.75 \[$2.50x + $1.75(64x) = $ 140.50\] now solve for x

With the wind, a jet takes 3 hours to fly 1890 miles. Against wind, it takes 4 hours for the same trip. Find the winds speed and the planes speed. (Let p=planes speed & w= winds speed.

if speed is p+w the plane travels 1890 miles in 3 hours if speed is pw the plane travels 1890 miles in 4 hours now solve it

Ok, thank you. I can solve it from there. (: Next one: Flying against the wind, an airplane travels 2880 miles in 4.5 hours. Flying with the wind, the airplane can travel the same distance in 4 hours. 1. Find the speed of the plane in calm air. 2. Find the speed of the wind.

I just have problems with setting up the equations.

By the way, for the previous problem, the simpler equations are: x = Calendar 1 y = Calendar 2 (calendar amount) x + y = 64 (calendar cost) 2.50x + 1.75y = 140.50

It makes no sense to work with an equation if you can't explain what the equation means.

Usually people do that to me. Funny that you're saying it about me. I allowed the other person to explain. Then I "butted in" afterward.

Well how about you change your name to MR. BUTTIN.

Perhaps a visual diagram would help, but understand that both problems are related to each other only because they are systems of equations. Other than that, they are two completely different problems.

As far as my explanation, I can take another stab at it to make it super clear. If it isn't clear after that, then I won't bother you anymore.

It is easier to work with variables then entire expressions, so we usually define x = number of 1st calendar type y = number of 2nd calendar type The problem states that there are a total of 64 calendars, so: Calendar 1 + Calendar 2 = 64   x + y = 64 The problem states that 1 calendar costs 2.50 each. The other costs 1.75 each: Calendar 1 costs 2.50 each Calendar 2 costs 1.75 each The total amount of calendars sold costs 140.50. In other words, when all 64 calendars together are sold the total cost will be 140.50: 2.50(Calendar 1) + 1.75(Calendar 2) = 140.50   2.50 x + 1.75 y = 140.50 So now, all we do is write both equations together as a system of equations: x + y = 64 2.50x + 1.75y = 140.50 Try to keep in mind what x and y means as you observe these equations.

Please try to control your frustration. It is counterproductive to studying.

Lol, i know. But, i thought after that problem i was caught up on work and everything. & then a friends text me and reminded me about our other work. * turns out its due tomorrow, 75 questions of Trig/Algebra & a bunch more work.
