Unit 2 A manager is comparing the cost of buying ball caps
with the company emblem from two different companies.
#8 •Company X charges a \$50 fee plus \$7 per cap.
A. 10 caps
•Company Y charges a \$30 fee plus \$9 per cap. B. 20 caps
C. 40 caps
For what number of ball caps (b) will the
D. 100 caps
manager’s cost be the same for both companies?
Cost Formula: Company X
CX = 7b + 50
CX = CY
Cost Formula: Company Y
CY = 9b + 30
7b + 50 = 9b + 30 (Subtract 7b on both sides)
50 = 2b + 30 (Subtract 30 on both sides)
20 = 2b
(Divide 2 on both sides)
10 = b
A shop sells one-pound bags of peanuts for \$2 and
three-pound bags of peanuts for \$5. If 9 bags are
purchased for a total cost of \$36, how many
three-pound bags were purchased?
#9
Method #1
Substitution
Let x = # of one-pound bags
Let y = # of three-pound bags
Equation #1:
Equation #2:
Unit 2
x + y = 9
2x + 5y = 36
(Total number of bags)
(Total value of bags)
Substitute x = 9 – y into Equation #2
Solve Equation #1 for x
x + y = 9
–y
–y
x
= 9–y
2(9 – y) + 5y

A shop sells one-pound bags of peanuts for \$2 and
three-pound bags of peanuts for \$5. If 9 bags are
purchased for a total cost of \$36, how many
three-pound bags were purchased?
Method #2
Elimination
Let x = # of one-pound bags
Let y = # of three-pound bags
Equation #1:
Equation #2:
x + y = 9
2x + 5y = 36
Multiply Equation #1 by –2
–2(x + y) = –2(9)
–2x – 2y = –18
(New Equation #1)
Unit 2
(Total number of bags)
(Total value of bags)
Add New Equation #1 and Equation #2
–2x – 2y = –18
2x + 5y = 36
3y = 18
y = 6
