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

    if s represents the number of small flower pots, and she bought 14 pots total, what would you do to isolate the small ones? (does that make sense?)

    okay, so for order's sake, we are going to arrange this as such; 760 - 40x = 210 + 70x

    there'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
