Okkkk so in total he gave away 5000 advertisements
So let x represent the pens
bumper stickers: 5000- Pens = 5000-x
Do you follow?
He gave away in total 5000 pieces some of which were pens and other which were bumper stickers. So there are x pens and 5000-x bumper stickers

Ok I am getting to it
So the bumper stickers $0.14 and the pens cost $0.23
Now in total we spend $970
Total cost of pens: .23*x
Total cost of bumper stickers: .14*(5000-x)
Total cost= Total cost of pens+ Total cost of bumper stickers
Now solve for x
