Posted by on .

I'm having a hard time coming up with the right equation to solve this one.

E-Z Stop Fast Gas sold $10,957 worth of gasoline yesterday. Regular grade sold for $2.30 a gallon and premium grade sold for $2.55 a gallon. If the station sold 420 more gallons of regular than of premium, how many gallons of regular were sold?

  • Math - ,

    x=Regular Grade
    y=Premium Grade

    x(2.30)+y(2.55)=10,957
    x=y+420

    y+420(2.30)+y(2.55)=10,957
    2.30y+966+2.55y=10,957
    4.85y+966=10,957
    4.85y=9991
    y=2,060 Gallons of Premium Grade

    x=2,060+420
    x=2,480 Gallons of Regular Grade

    Hope this helps :)
