Required equation

Step-by-step explanation:

Given : After the booster club sold 40 hot dogs at a football game, it had $90 in profit. After the next game, it had sold a total of 80 hot dogs and had a total of$210 in profit.

To find : Which equation models the total profit,y,based on the number of hot dogs sold,x ?

Solution :

Let x = total number of hot dogs sold

y = total profit from total sales of hot dogs

We can model the equation: ......[A]

where, y is the total profit and x is the number of hot dogs sold.

Profit for 40 hot dogs = $90 profit The system of equation form is ......[1] Profit for 80 hot dogs =$210 profit

The system of equation form is

.......[2]

The solution of equations [1] and [2]

Subtract equation [1] and [2]

Substitute in equation [1]

Substitute the values in equation [A]

This is the required equation models the total profit based on number of hot dogs.

Work out the area of a triangle of base 5cm and height 6 cm? Please been stuck on this for ages x
Solution 1
The area of triangle = 1/2 b h

where b = base and h =Â  height
so b = 5 cm and h = 6 cm

Now you can find A = 1/2 (5)(6) = 1/2 (30) = 15

A = 15 cm^2
