starrhunter Group Title

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

    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
