Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Nessie on Tuesday, February 10, 2009 at 4:42pm.

Translate each problem into a system of equations. DO NOT attempt to solve. JUST write the equation(s).

Mountainside Fleece sold 40 neckwarmers. Solid color neckwarmers sold for $9.90 each and print ones sold for $12.75 each. In all, $421.65 was taken in for the neckwarmers. How many of each type were sold?

I do not need to solve the equation. I just do not know how to take the provided information and make equations. My teacher told me that I would probably have to make two equations with two variables (x and y). Does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks so much!
