 Question 215574: Well, I didn't see linear programming anywhere, so I suppose this is the place to send in my question. The available parking area of a parking lot is 600 square meters. A car requires 6 square meters of space, and a bus requires 30 square meters of space. The attendant can handle no more than 60 vehicles. If the parking fees are \$2.50 for cars and \$7.50 for buses, how many o feach type of vehicle should the attendant accept to maximize product? What would that profit be? Let X= the number of cars, let Y= The number of buses. Note: My teacher used what he called "natural restrictions" when doing this on the board, and graphed the equations he got out of them. There was 4. (The >/= stnads for greater than or equal to, since I can't put in the actual symbol.) 1. x >/= 0 2. y >/= 0 3. x + y 4. 6x + 30y Then he shaded in the area inbetween all the lines, and found the points which made up the shaded area. If it wasn't an already given exact point, he had to find it throught the two line equations which made up that particular point. He went incredibally fast, and thus I wasn't able to understand much of any of it... Click here to see answer by stanbon(57282)

 Question 215902: Find a point that solves all equations algebraically. The equations are: 8x+2y-z=-25 3x-3y+5z=10 -5x+6y-2z=17 I have tried several different times to solve by adding and subtracting the equations to get an equation with two solutions, then add and subtract those to solve for one variable and then be able to fill in a two variable equation to get the next variable and finally stick it all in an original equation to get the last variable. I tried substitution. I end up with really big, really ugly answers that, when plugged in, do not add up right. I don't know what else to try. Thank you for your help.
