If we let x be cans, then let y represent bottles
anonymous
  • anonymous
hence the total weight would be the weight of how many bottles she has + the weight of how many cans she has
anonymous
  • anonymous
so say x represents bottles, how much does x bottles weigh?

17x right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
because 1 bottles weighs 17ounces (i.e when x=1... and so on)
anonymous
  • anonymous
sorry, x is cans not bottles. sorry for any confusion
anonymous
  • anonymous
oops, cans weigh14 ounces not 17 haha my typing is poor
anonymous
  • anonymous
its ok i figured what u meant
anonymous
  • anonymous
so x=14
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, x is a can
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh
anonymous
  • anonymous
14ounces is how much one can weighs
anonymous
  • anonymous
so how much would 2 cans weigh (i.e x=2)...it would be 14*2=28ounces right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
28
anonymous
  • anonymous
good
anonymous
  • anonymous
so how much would x cans weigh and y bottles weigh
anonymous
  • anonymous
so x cans would weigh 14x and y bottles would weigh 70y
anonymous
  • anonymous
hence, total weight = 14x+70y if we combine the bottles and cans right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
good so we also know that x+y=950 (no. of cans and bottles) and total weight=14x+70y
anonymous
  • anonymous
seems here we aren't told how many bottles and cans of each there are, only that there are 950 cans and bottles together
anonymous
  • anonymous
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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
no x does not equal 14
anonymous
  • anonymous
14 represents HOW MUCH x weighs
anonymous
  • anonymous
so we write it as 14x
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes u are sorry that came out wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
because if i said i was holding two cans, that means x=2 which also means 2 cans weighs, 14x=14*x=28 ounces
anonymous
  • anonymous
14x+70(950-x) ???
anonymous
  • anonymous
that irrelevent to be honest, our expression is simply: Total weight = 14x+70y
anonymous
  • anonymous
it seems that 950 cans and bottles is redundant for the total weight expression unless we know how many cans and bottles there are
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks but i inputted that answer and it was correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha interesting... that only gives an expression for the weight of bottles haha
anonymous
  • anonymous
im just being pedantic thats all. the problem statement needs re-wording if thats the answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
but well done!
