Let us say she bought T of the \$12 one and F of the \$14 one. Equation says 12T + 14F = 64.

Need more information to solve this problem because you can't solve two variables with a single equation.

4. shivamsinha

na u can

5. shivamsinha

with the above equation only one logical possiblities is possible!!

6. GT

Oh sure....but, that is the "second equation". You can guess about it. But, it is the second equation.

7. shivamsinha

try putting some values less than 5

8. GT

Trying random guesses is not same as solving. In this case, you need a second equation.

9. shivamsinha

@GT see t<5 f<5 itz obvious as 12*5=60 14*5=70

10. shivamsinha

fr such ques. u 've 2 substitute logical possiblities

It appears to me that you are trying to convince me as opposed to teaching/answering the original poster.

12. shivamsinha

see such questions ...should be answered logical way ...*no offence!!

13. shivamsinha

and in fact it is easy to find!!

14. GT

I understand. And, you are a smart dude.

15. shivamsinha

lol ....thanks ... and was dat out of sarcasm ... ;) * jk!!

No. I know you are. The point is to explain and teach the person who actually posted the question. Or, in worst case offer an answer to that person.
