A ceramics workshop makes wreaths, trees, and sleighs for sale at Christmas. A wreath takes 3 hours to prepare, 2 hours to paint, and 9 hours to fire. A tree takes 14 hours to prepare, 3 hours to paint, and 4 hours to fire. A sleigh takes 4 hours to prepare, 15 hours to paint, and 7 hours to fire. If the workshop has 116 hours for prep time, 64 hours for painting, and 110 hours for firing, How many of each can be made?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1call number of wreaths w , trees t and sleighs s. now you have 3 equations with 3 unknowns: 3w + 14t + 4s = 116 2w +3t + 15s = 64 9w+4t+7s=110

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1another way is plugging the answers into the equations .. the answer that satisfies all 3 equations is the correct one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but solving them is better since you wont always have answers. so lets do it using both elimination and substitution. if you multiply the first equation by 3 then subtract the 3rd one from the first you have: 38t+5s=238
