Then the 'cost equation' for the builder is: ?x + ?y + 48 z = ?

Suppose he plans to build a total of 216 apartments, then complete the equation in x, y, and z which describes this: ?x + ?y + z = ? .

Further suppose that the number of one bedroom apartments must equal the total number of bigger apartments. Then we get the restriction: x +(?)y +(?)z = 0.

Finally, find the solution to these equations: x = ? , y = ?, and z = ?

This question has been answered.

You were given the equations.

Now, it is up to you to solve these equations simultaneously.

If you post your answer I will check for correctness.

**Melissa**, Sunday, February 6, 2011 at 8:26pmI haven't posted this before.

I've been working on this for 2 days and I didn't search the website for this problem again today. Someone else must have posted it.

I just couldn't figure out the equations.

Thanks anyway.

**helper**, Sunday, February 6, 2011 at 8:44pmI am sorry. This exact problem has been posted at least 3 times in two days.

Here are the equations. These are not easy to solve simultaneously. I used an online calculator for the answer if you need to check your answer.

25x + 35y +54z = 8277

x + y +z = 236

x + -y -z = 0 (in the sentence, it was stated that x=y+z)
