Suppose you are in the market for a new home and are interested in a new housing community under construction in a new city. The sales represenative informs you that their are two floor plans still avaiable, and that their are a total of 56 houses available. Use x to represent floor plan1 and y to represent floor plan 2. What is an equation that represents that represents the situation?

x + y = 56

Thanks i got that answer also what about the sales represeatives then indicates that their are three times as many homes avaiable with second floor plan then the first. Write an equation that illustrates this situation.Use the same variables.

You should be able to do that as well. One of the variables is three times the other. Write that in equation form. You can let either x or y be the variable that has more models available
