Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here you go: you make 2 equations in these types of problems Lets have T = # of turkey sandwiches and R = # of roast beef sandwiches 3.75T + 3.50R = 36.25 second equation is T + R = 10, which means T = 10R Then you substitute the value of T into the first equation...so 3.75 (10  R) + 3.50R = 36.25, and then you solve and get R = 5, which means T also = 5, because 105 is 5 :)
