    a normal working day the mill makes 3 times as many units of plywood as they do lumber.profit of lumber is $25 profit of plywood is $40 how many of each must be sold to obtain a profit of $14790

  • urgent math - ,

    let the number of lumber units be x
    then the number of plywood units is 3x

    then 25x + 40(3x) = 14790

    solve for x

    so... i just pick any number

  • urgent math - ,

    no, you solve the equation
    ( why would you think to just pick any number ??)
    25x + 40(3x) = 14790
    25x + 120x = 14790
    145x = 14790
    divide by 145
    x = 102

    so they should make 102 units of lumber
    and 3(102) or 306 units of plywood.

    check 102(25) + 306(40) = 14790
