Thanks i got that answer also what about the sales represeatives then indicates that their are three times as many homes avaiable with second floor plan then the first. Write an equation that illustrates this situation.Use the same variables.

You should be able to do that as well. One of the variables is three times the other. Write that in equation form. You can let either x or y be the variable that has more models available
