Homework Help: algebra (word problem)

Posted by catalyst on Monday, October 26, 2009 at 3:46pm.

you are in charge of bringing snacks to a picnic. you decide to buy grapes and pretzels. the grapes are $2.39 per pound and the pretzels cost $1.89 a bag. you have $11 to spend. write an equation that models to different amounts of grapes and pretzels that you can buy.

I think I need to write this in y=mx+b formula.. if that's possible..

y=-0.79x+4.60

is that right?

thanks in advance
