Avery and Caden have saved \$27,000 towards a down payment on a house. They want to keep some of the money in a bank account that pays 2.4% annual interest and the rest in a stock fund that pays 7.2% annual interest. How much should they put into each account so that they earn 6% interest per year?
324.00
Irene
1.2% of 27.000
Irene
i did 2.4%-7.2% i got 1.2%
Irene
I have 6% of 27000 = 1620 so we need to solve 2.4x +7.2y =1620
Catherine
I think Catherine is on the right track. Solve for x and y.
Scott
next bit : x=(1620-7.2y)/2.4 y=(1620-2.4x)/7.2 I think we can then put the expression on the right hand side of the "x=" into the second equation. 2.4x in the second equation can be rewritten as 2.4(rhs of first equation) I write this out tidy and get back to you...

Darrin is hanging 200 feet of Christmas garland on the three sides of fencing that enclose his rectangular front yard. The length is five feet less than five times the width. Find the length and width of the fencing.
Mario invested \$475 in \$45 and \$25 stock shares. The number of \$25 shares was five less than three times the number of \$45 shares. How many of each type of share did he buy?
let # of \$25 shares be (x) and # of \$45 shares be (y) we start with \$25x + \$45y=475, right? we are told the number of \$25 shares is 3y-5) so plug in this for x. \$25(3y-5)+\$45y=\$475 75y-125+45y=475 75y+45y=600 120y=600 y=5 so if #\$25 shares is (3y-5) plug in y.

will every polynomial have finite number of multiples?
a=# of 10's. b=# of 20's; a+b=54; 10a + 20b=\$910; a=54 -b; 10(54-b) + 20b=\$910; 540-10b+20b=\$910; 540+10b=\$910; 10b=910-540; 10b=370; b=37; so there are 37 20's and since a+b=54, a+37=54; a=54-37=17; a=17, so 17 10's. So lets check. \$740+\$170=\$910.
. A cashier has 54 bills, all of which are \$10 or \$20 bills. The total value of the money is \$910. How many of each type of bill does the cashier have?
whats the coefficient of 17x
the solution says it 14 but how i thought it would be 17 im i right or wrong is the exercise wrong
Dwayne
17
Melissa
wow the exercise told me 17x solution is 14x lmao
Dwayne
thank you
