The prices during the week were 61.9c/L and then a gas war forced the price down to 54.9c/L. How many L were sold at each price?Answer by Mathtut(3670)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!lets call the number of liters sold of 61.9c and 54.9c gas, s and f respectively : s+f=50000...........eq 1 .619s+.549f=29000...eq 2 : lets rewrite eq 1 to s=50000-f and plug that value into eq 2 : .619(50000-f)+.549f=29000 : 30950-.619f+.549f=29000 : -.07f=-1950 : liters of 54.9 c gas : liters of 61.9 c gas
