x = number of semi rooms
y = number of private rooms
The equation for this problem would be:
320x + 340y = 32800
Because this is a single equation in 2 variables, there is more than one correct answer. For there to be only one correct answer, there needs to be more information so that I could set up a second equation.
To check the provided answer, I am going to substitute the numbers that I was given into the equation that I found.
320(60) + 340(40) = 32,800
19,200 + 13,600 = 32,800
32,800 = 32,800
The answer 60 semi and 40 private is a solution, but it is not the only possible solution for this problem.
(I have not taken the time to see if this is the only solution that gives whole numbers for both x and y.)
