***ALGEBRA 2***
***WILL GIVE MEDAL TO YOU AND BECOME FAN***
Brad can make 4 key chains in an hour. Velma can make only 3 key chains in an hour, but she already has 6 completed key chains. Explain to Brad how he can use a system of equations to determine when he will have the same number of key chains as Velma.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let y be the amount of total key chains they have and x be the number of hours in the project how would you set it up after that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both equations are right but the second equation is what you get after subbing 4x for y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let t be the number of hours when the total production of keys from Rad and Thelma are equal. 4t = 3t + 6 t = 6 hours when both workers have produced 24 keys

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep you dont have to solve for the other variable since its not asking for total
