Jason works as an administrative assistant for a local lawyer's office. The office is running low on pens and notepads, so he is asked to buy $150 worth of pens and notepads. Pens cost $1, and notepads cost $2. If the number of pens he buys is represented by x and the number of notepads he buys is represented by y, the situation can be given by x + 2y = 150, where 0 ≤ x ≤ 150, 0 ≤ y ≤ 75 and x and y can take only integer values. Assuming that the stationery store is out of notepads, how many pens would Jason have to purchase to spend the entire amount he is given?

never mind its x = 150

x + 2y = 150...out of notepads...so sub in 0 for y
x + 2(0) = 150
x = 150
