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.

Find the number of deluxe staterooms for each of the ships

28,29,881

- skullpatrol

How?

- anonymous

I still dont get this

- skullpatrol

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.

- anonymous

ok

- skullpatrol

The Mediterranean Paradise has 29 fewer deluxe staterooms than four times the number of deluxe staterooms on the Pacific Paradise.
M =4P - 29

- anonymous

k

- skullpatrol

P, C, M
P = the number of rooms on the Pacific
C = 28 + P
M =4P - 29

- anonymous

ok

- skullpatrol

Step 3 Reread the problem and write an equation that represents relations among the numbers in the problem.

- skullpatrol

P + C + M = 881
if the total number of deluxe staterooms for the three ships is 881.

- anonymous

3+28+4p-29=881

- skullpatrol

Substitute into P + C + M = 881
the three:
P = the number of rooms on the Pacific
C = 28 + P
M =4P - 29

- skullpatrol

P + C + M = 881
P +(28 + P) + (4P -29) = 881

- anonymous

so, p+(28+p)+(4p-29)=881 = 147

- anonymous

sorry i got confuse with the problem. didnt mean too put 147

- skullpatrol

Step 4 Solve the equation and find the unknowns asked for.

- anonymous

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

- skullpatrol

Solve the equation:
p+(28+p)+(4p-29)=881 for p= the number of rooms on the Pacific

- anonymous

the number of rooms on the ship is 881

- skullpatrol

Solve the equation:
p+(28+p)+(4p-29)=881 for p

- anonymous

p=147

- skullpatrol

Very good :-)

- anonymous

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

- skullpatrol

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

- anonymous

c= 28+P=147

- anonymous

im still confuse a little.

- anonymous

The Pacific Paradise has______deluxe staterooms
The Caribbean Paradise has____deluxe
The mediterranean Paradise has___deluxe staterooms

- skullpatrol

Sub p=147 into c= 28+p

- skullpatrol

|dw:1353571177390:dw|

- skullpatrol

To find the number of rooms on the Mediterranean Paradise sub P = 147 into:
M =4P - 29

- skullpatrol

Step 5 Check your results with the words of the problem. Give the answer.
