If we let x be cans, then let y represent bottles

so say x represents bottles, how much does x bottles weigh?

17x right?

because 1 bottles weighs 17ounces (i.e when x=1... and so on)

sorry, x is cans not bottles. sorry for any confusion

oops, cans weigh14 ounces not 17 haha my typing is poor

its ok i figured what u meant

so x=14

no, x is a can

oh

14ounces is how much one can weighs

so how much would 2 cans weigh (i.e x=2)...it would be 14*2=28ounces right?

28

good

so how much would x cans weigh and y bottles weigh

so x cans would weigh 14x and y bottles would weigh 70y

hence, total weight = 14x+70y if we combine the bottles and cans right?

yes

good so we also know that x+y=950 (no. of cans and bottles) and total weight=14x+70y

no x does not equal 14

14 represents HOW MUCH x weighs

so we write it as 14x

yes u are sorry that came out wrong

14x+70(950-x) ???

that irrelevent to be honest,
our expression is simply:
Total weight = 14x+70y

thanks but i inputted that answer and it was correct

haha interesting... that only gives an expression for the weight of bottles haha

im just being pedantic thats all. the problem statement needs re-wording if thats the answer

but well done!
