There is not enough evidence to explain a complete answer but I can set up a guideline.

- We know that there are two beverages labeled as x and y. Knowing that we have both of these making $240, we can simply write it as this:
**x+y=240**. - We can then graph the equation. You can make everything equal to y, making
**y=-x+240**. Both of your intercepts equal 240. You can check your answer at desmos.com to see the same results.

You haven't given us enough information. Are there different kinds of beverages? How much does each cup cost?02/01/18
