***WILL GIVE MEDAL TO WHOEVER HELPS***
Question:
Sherri has 23 pieces of jewelry to sell. She sells the bracelets for $2 and the necklaces for $3, and earns a total of $55. If the bracelets are represented by x and the necklaces are represented by y, which of the following systems of equations can be used to calculate the number of bracelets and necklaces sold?
Answer choices:
x + y = 23, 3x + 2y = 55
x + y = 55, 3x + 2y = 23
x + y = 23, 2x + 3y = 55
x + y = 55, 2x + 3y = 23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.22x  8y = 32  reduce by dividing by 2 x  4y = 16 x = 4y + 16 now sub 4y + 16 in for x back into the other equation 6x  4y = 36...this can be reduced as well 3x  2y = 18 now sub 3(4y + 16)  2y = 18 12y + 48  2y = 18 subtract 48 12y  2y = 18  48 10y =  30 y = 3 x = 4y + 16 x = 4(3) + 16 x = 12 + 16 x = 4 check... x = 4y + 16 4 = 4(3) + 16 4 = 12 + 16 4 = 4 (correct) answer is (4,3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this right? What are the solutions to the following system of equations? Select the correct answer below. y = x2 − 4x + 8 4x + y = 12 (2, 20) and (−2, 4) (2, 4) and (−2, 20) (−2, 2) and (4, 20) (20, −2) and (4, 2) < my answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.24x + y = 12 y = 4x + 12 x^2  4x + 8= 4x + 12 x^2 + 8 = 12 x^2 = 4 x = sq rt 4 = 2 and 2 y = 4x + 12 y = 4 (+) 2 + 12 y = 4 (+2) + 12 y = 8 + 12 y = 4 y = 4 (2) + 12 y = 8 + 12 y = 20 so y = 4 and 20 so your answers are correct
