Jackson is on a new exercise regimen. To begin, his trainer does not want him to complete more than a total of 27 lunges and sit-ups. For every lunge that he completes, Jacob burns 30 calories. He burns an additional 20 calories for every sit-up. His goal is to burn at least 620 calories during a workout session. Which is a combination of lunges and sit-ups that Jacob can complete in a session? 7 lunges and 19 sit-ups 11 lunges and 15 sit-ups 10 lunges and 14 sit-ups 12 lunges and 19 sit-ups

    So just use the process of elimination? I tried doing that but none of my math turned out to be any answer choice given :/

    let lunges = x and sit ups = y so his trainer has said not to do total more than 27 so x+y =27 and he should burn atleast 620 calories so 30 calories for lunges and 20 for situps so you have 30x+20y =620 solve these 2 equations you will get answer

    Well I work backwards a lot, so I guess I will fail. I know I need to practice more. but for now, I just wanna get this review done :) and make sure I am ready for my exam tomorrow.

    okay do this x+y =27 x= 27-y put value of x in 2nd equation and find y

    Well now i am doubting myself. I worked through the steps and 630 is what i got. So. am i right? about the answer being b?

    yeah that's where i am getting stuck. I keep plugging in all the answer choices but none of them seem to make sense.

    i guess it is right not more than 27 and atleast 620 so you can go for B
