how about...

let the number of scientific calculators be x

then the number of graphing calc's is 42-x

then 9x + 56(42-x) = 1553

9x + 2352 - 56x = 1553

-47x = -799

x = 17

42-x = 25

So they bought 17 scientific and 25 graphing types.

check : 17(9) + 25(56) = 1553

Reiny is mostly correct how I think about it is I think about what I know write it down I see what they are asking me and try to figure it out. Try to make it easier for you to understand
