Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok... so the x value is 1st followed by the y value... what is the x value where the lines intersect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Mike and his friends bought cheese wafers for $2 per packet and chocolate wafers for $1 per packet at a carnival. They spent a total of $25 to buy a total of 20 packets of wafers of the two varieties. Part A: Write a system of equations that can be solved to find the number of packets of cheese wafers and the number of packets of chocolate wafers that Mike and his friends bought at the carnival. Define the variables used in the equations. (5 points) Part B: How many packets of chocolate wafers and cheese wafers did they buy? Explain how you got the answer and why you selected a particular method to get the answer. (5 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the algebraic system which model your problem is: \[\left\{ \begin{gathered} 2x + y = 25 \hfill \\ x + y = 20 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \right.\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2where x ia the number of packets of chees wafers, whereas y is the numbers of packets of chocolate wafers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the first equation takes into account for total cost the second one takes into account for total number of packets of wafer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the answer of part A is my system above, with the meaning of the variable x, and y, and the meaning of both equations as I wrote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the algebraic system is part a?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so now moving on to part b?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes! we can solve your system using the elimination method, namely we solve the second equation with respect to the variable y, so we get: \[y = 20  x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then I substitute into the first equation, so i can write this: \[2x + 20  x = 25\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2solving taht equation for x, I get: x=5

Michele_Laino

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2substituting x=5 into the equation for y, I get: y=20x=205=15

Michele_Laino

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the solution is: x=5, y=15 that is the answer for part B
