The total No. of mowers = 30 Let the No. of small mowers be = x; So, the No. of large mowers = (30-x) Sale of small mowers = (\$249.99)(x) and the Sale of large mowers = \$329.99(30-x) = \$9899.70 - 329.99x Total sale = \$249.99x + \$9899.70 - 329.99x = \$8379.70 = -80x + \$9899.70 = \$8379.70. (By transposing, \$9899.70 - \$8379.70 = 80x = \$1520.00 = 80x. Therefore, = x = \$1520/80 = 19 small mowers. So the large mowers (30 - x) = 30 -19 =11 large mowers. Small mowers = 19; Large mowers = 11. Answer. I think you have understood this. If not, feel free to contact me anytime for any doubts in maths online. God Bless you. gsm
