help please
A company sells boxes of small blue pompoms (b) for $42 and boxes of large orange pompoms (p) for $52. They make batches of small blue pompoms that fill 8 boxes and batches of large orange pompoms that fill 4 boxes. The company only has 40 boxes. Which system of equations helps the company plan to make $350?
A) b = 40 − p
8b + 4p = 40
B) b = 40 − p
42b + 52p = 350
C) 8b = 40 − 4p
42b − 52p = 350
D) 8b = 40 − 4p
42b + 52p = 350

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if b is the amount of blue ones, and p is the amount of orange ones. Can you give me an equation that would suggest we sold a total of 40 once we sold out?
