Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Nessie on Tuesday, February 10, 2009 at 4:10pm.

Translate each situation to a system of equations. Do not attempt to solve.

Paint Town sold 45 paintbrushes, one kind at $8.50 each and another at $9.50 each. In all, $398.75 was taken in for the brushes. How many of each kind were sold?

My teacher told me that I would probably have to make two equations and each one would have two variables.
I do not need to know how to solve, I just do not know how to make equations from the information provided.
Thanks!
