the three math idols judges have been eliminating contestants all day! The number of one-step equations and two-step equations who have been eliminated today is equal to 610! If four times the number of one-step equations minus twice the number of two-step equations is equal to 350, how many one-step equations auditioned today? A-260 B-350 C-340 D-670
one+two=610 4*one-2*two=350
one=610-two sfone plug it into 2nd eq 4*(610-two)-2*two=350 solve for two
please please tell me where this problem comes from. no one will say, but i see it more than once a week.
plug it back into first equation 1045/3+one=610 solve for one
why you want to know though?
i get 261.67 but round down to 260
I think he is just curious
