Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well.. "(20x+40y)/(x+y)=35 x+y=48 x=48y Use this value of x in the first equation (96020y+40y)/(48y+y)=35 (960+20y)/48=35 (multiply both sides by 48) 960+20y=1680 (subtract 960 from both sides) 20y=720 (divide both sides by 20) y=36 so there are 36 40oz bottles "
