Let b=# of bananas , p=# of plums a) 0.8b (cost of all bananas)+0.2p (cost of all plums)=16.00 (total available amount) 0.8b + 0.2p=16 (Ans) b) 0.8b=16-->b=20 bananas c) 0.2p=16-->p=80 plums d) b=12, 0.8*12 +0.2p=16 -->0.2p=16-9.6=6.4 p=32 plums e) b=11, 0.8*11 +0.2p=16 -->0.2p=16-8.8=7.2 p=36-->4 more plums f) Yes. One banana can be relinquished for 4 plums no matter the no.of bananas and plums g) h) i) sorry dunno these parts
