set up variables for everything---> use only one variable (that's all thats needed!)
use a variable, lets say "x"
x--> money recieved for something
squash--> money recieved---> x
peppers-> " " ---> x
The money recieved is the same for both, hence they both can be represented by x.
The tomatoes brought in twice as much as the peppers and squash TOGETHER.
Translating the words into algebraic terms....
for tomatoes---> 2(x+x) = 2(2x) = 4x
The money she made from the corn was $8 more than she made from the other three kinds of vegetables COMBINED.
corn---> 8 + x + x + 4x
= 6x + 8
she sold $200 worth of vegetables - peppers, squash, tomatoes, and corn.
x + x + 4x + 6x + 8 = 200
solve for x---->then you have the money recieved from the squash or the peppers
4x----> money recieved due to tomatoes
6x + 8----> money recieved for corn
Extra; What percent of the total sales did each kind of vegetable represent?
one you get the money recieved due to each of the items then.....
percent of total sales = money recieved due to a veggie / 200
P.S. 200 is the denominator and represent that total money recieved
Hope this helped!!!!!
