graphing calculators?

  • algebra 1 - ,

    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
