Can someone help me please... Thanks A new cruise ship line has just launched 3 new ships; the Pacific Paradise, the Carribean Paradise and the Mediterranean Paradise. The Carribean Paradise has 28 more deluxe staterooms than the Pacific Paradise. The Mediterranean Paradise has 29 fewer deluxe staterooms than four times the number of deluxe staterooms on the Pacific Paradise. Find the number of deluxe staterooms for each of the ships if the total number of deluxe staterooms for the three ships is 881. The Pacific Paradise has______deluxe staterooms The Caribbean Paradise has____deluxe
Step 1 Read the problem carefully. Decide what unknown numbers are asked for and what facts are known.
Im still confuse with this problem.

I still dont get this
Let P = the number of rooms on the Pacific, since The Carribean Paradise has 28 more deluxe staterooms than the Pacific Paradise. Then C = 28 + P.
The Mediterranean Paradise has 29 fewer deluxe staterooms than four times the number of deluxe staterooms on the Pacific Paradise. M =4P - 29
P, C, M P = the number of rooms on the Pacific C = 28 + P M =4P - 29
Step 3 Reread the problem and write an equation that represents relations among the numbers in the problem.
P + C + M = 881 if the total number of deluxe staterooms for the three ships is 881.
Substitute into P + C + M = 881 the three: P = the number of rooms on the Pacific C = 28 + P M =4P - 29
P + C + M = 881 P +(28 + P) + (4P -29) = 881
so, p+(28+p)+(4p-29)=881 = 147
sorry i got confuse with the problem. didnt mean too put 147
Step 4 Solve the equation and find the unknowns asked for.
ok. how do i find the unknow answer for The Pacific Paradise has______deluxe staterooms The Caribbean Paradise has____deluxe The mediterranean Paradise has___deluxe staterooms
Solve the equation: p+(28+p)+(4p-29)=881 for p= the number of rooms on the Pacific
the number of rooms on the ship is 881
Solve the equation: p+(28+p)+(4p-29)=881 for p
What are the answers for all three. p= 147 The Pacific Paradise has______deluxe staterooms The Caribbean Paradise has____deluxe The mediterranean Paradise has___deluxe staterooms
So now you know how many rooms are on the Pacific= 147rooms. To find the others substitute this value into: C = 28 + P M =4P - 29
im still confuse a little.
The Pacific Paradise has______deluxe staterooms The Caribbean Paradise has____deluxe The mediterranean Paradise has___deluxe staterooms
Sub p=147 into c= 28+p
|dw:1353571177390:dw|
To find the number of rooms on the Mediterranean Paradise sub P = 147 into: M =4P - 29
Step 5 Check your results with the words of the problem. Give the answer.
