If we let x be cans, then let y represent bottles
hence the total weight would be the weight of how many bottles she has + the weight of how many cans she has
so say x represents bottles, how much does x bottles weigh?
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
no, x is a can
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?
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?
good so we also know that x+y=950 (no. of cans and bottles) and total weight=14x+70y
seems here we aren't told how many bottles and cans of each there are, only that there are 950 cans and bottles together
im confused lol x = 14 ounce cans bottles are 70 ounces 950 total Write an expression for the combined total weight (in ounces) of the cans and bottles in her truck.
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
because if i said i was holding two cans, that means x=2 which also means 2 cans weighs, 14x=14*x=28 ounces
that irrelevent to be honest, our expression is simply: Total weight = 14x+70y
it seems that 950 cans and bottles is redundant for the total weight expression unless we know how many cans and bottles there are
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!
