Solving A System of Equations


Problem situation

Problem Situation

  • To raise funds, the bands sells two sizes of the cookie dough, one for 6$ and another for $10. If 205 containers of cookie dough were sold with cash receipts of $1710, how many of each size of cookie dough was sold?


Define variables

Define Variables

J = Number of Small Cookie Dough container

C = The Number of Large Cookie Dough container


System of equations

System of Equations

  • J + C = 205

  • 6J + 10C = 1710


Solution method

Solution Method

  • Guess And Check:

    6*99+10*115=1744

    6*9910*112=1714

    6*99+10*111.8=1712

    6*99+10*111.6=1710


Steps of solution

Steps of Solution

  • Although 99 and 111.5 work, they do not add up to 205.

  • 99 + 111.5 = 210.5


Solution to the system of equations

Solution to the System of Equations

  • (C, J)

  • (120, 85)


Check of solution

Check of Solution

  • 85 + 120 = 205 ☺

  • 6(85) + 10(120) = 1710 ☺


Solution in the problem situation

Solution in the Problem Situation

The Number of Small Cookie Dough containers sold is 85.

The Number of Large Cookie Dough containers sold is 120.
