Christa buys 14 flowerpots. Some are small and cost $2.40 each. The rest are large and cost $5.60 each. She spends a total of $49.60.
Which equation models this situation?
Let s represent the number of small flowerpots she buys.
A.
5.6s + 2.4(s + 14) = 49.6
B.
(2.4 + 9.6)(14 – s) = 49.6
C.
2.4s + 5.6(14 – s) = 49.6
D.
5.6s + 2.8(14) = 49.6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there's a couple of methods to solving it. i simply plugged in the final answers as x and solved to find which one worked best. it's crude, but effective nonetheless
