I need the answer for my brother i couldn't figure it out.
Hi Natalia;
stools...x, $28/stool
chairs...x+25, $32/chair
budget...$2,620
$2620=[($32)(x+25)]+[($28)(x)]
$2620=$32x+$800+$28x
$2620=$60x+$800
Let's subtract $800 from both sides...
$2620-$800=$60x+$800-$800
$1820=$60x
Let's divide both sides by $60...
$1820/$60=($60x)/$60
30=x
30+25=x+25
They can purchase 30 stools, 55 chairs, and will have $20 remaining.
