y=-0.79x+4.60

**Reiny**, Monday, October 26, 2009 at 4:41pmYou would first of all have to define what the x and y represent.

From your equation I concluded that

y is the number of pounds of grapes and x the number of pounds of pretzels.

Why is it necessary to change the equation to the form you have, I would write it as

189x + 239y = 1100

Your equation is correct.
