Jenna buys 12 lb of meat. Some of the meat is chicken and costs $1.90/lb. The rest is beef, which costs $4.30/lb. She spends a total of $34.80. Which equation models this situation? Let c represent the number of pounds of chicken she buys. A. (1.9 + 4.3)(12 – c) = 34.8 B. 4.3c + 1.9(c + 14) = 34.8 C. 4.3c + 1.9(12) = 34.8 D. 1.9c + 4.3(12 − c) = 34.8

c is the pounds of chicken she buys. And she pays $1.90 for each pound. So the total amount she pays for chicken is the 1.90 * c

So if 12 pounds of meat total was bought, and c pounds of it was chicken, how can you write the amount of beef sold?

beef = all meat - chicken

well the total of chicken and beef is 12 pounds let pounds of chicken=c and let pounds of beef=b so c+b=12 ok?

ok

and you know it cost 1.9 per pound of chicken, which you can write as 1.9c and 4.3 per pound of beef, which is the same as 4.3b and you know the total cost is 34.80. can you try to make an equation using these three information?

how did you get C? what did you do?

i guessed
nikato
  • nikato
not exactly given that info. you're equation would be 1.9c + 4.3b=34.80 but remember our earlier equation. c+b=12 we want to isolate c so we have c=12-b now substitute this into the other equation
