For a wedding, Shereda bought several dozen
roses and several dozen carnations. The roses

per dozen. Shereda bought a total of 17 dozen
flowers and paid a total of \$192. How many
A 6 dozen
B 7 dozen
C 8 dozen
D 9 dozen

Let X be the number of dozen roses.
17-X is the number of dozen carnations.
15 X + 8(17-X) = 192
7 X = 192 - 136 = 56
Solve that for X
