Christine went shopping and brought each of her eight nephews a gift , either a video costing 14.95 or a cd costing 16.88. she spent 133.41 on the gifts. How many videos and how many cds

  • algebra - ,

    I will assume she bought 8 gifts, so
    let the number of videos be v
    let the number of Cd's be 8-v

    so 14.95v + 16.88(8-v) = 133.41
    14.95v + 135.04 - 16.88v = 133.41
    -1.93v = -1.63

    v = -1.63/-1.93 which is not a whole number
    since v must be a whole number, your problem is flawed.

    Check your typing
