Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2simply multiply "x" by 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2thats it! Rachel's function for number of bracelets made in "x" hours is \[y = 3x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2notice that if you plugin x=2, you do get y = 3*2 = 6 as expected

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2similarly we need to setup an equation for Oliver based on given info

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2`Oliver can make only 2 bracelets in an hour, but he already has 5 completed bracelets` can you tell me how many bracelets Oliver will be having after 2 hours ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2he can only make 2 bracelets per hour right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes he can make 4 bracelets in 2 hours but he already has 5 to start with, so in total he will be having 4 + 5 = 9, yes ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.220, and add the starting 5 to get 25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so how many bracelets will he be having in "x" hours ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2plugin x = 2 20*2 = 40 does he really make 40 bracelets in 2 hours ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no try again, you're close

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Alright! stop guessing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2`Oliver can make only 2 bracelets in an hour`, 2 bracelets per hour, so the function will be \(y = 2x\) `but he already has 5 completed bracelets` adding this the overall function for Oliver is \[y=2x+5\]

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so the system of equations is \[y = 3x\\y=2x+5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh! Lol NOW I get it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Good :) Rachel needs to solve this system to find the time at which her bracelets equal Oliver's

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you know how to solve it ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Should we actually solve it?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2solving is easy \[y = 3x\\y=2x+5\] since the left hand sides are same, the right hand sides also must be same : \[3x = 2x+5\] solve \(x\), can you ?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Excellent! so after 5 hours both Rachel and Oliver will be having same number of bracelets
