The sales representative informs you that there are two floor plans available, and that there are a total of 56 houses available. Use x to represent floor plan #1 and y to represent floor plan #2. Write an equation that illustrates the situation.

The sales representative later indicates that there are 3 times as many homes available with the second floor plan than the first. Write an equation that illustrates this situation. Use the same variables you used in part a

• math -

for the first equation, you would put

x+y=56 (because there are a TOTAL of 56 houses available; therefore, x + y should give you 56).

not sure about the second one but i think it should b

x+3y (because there are 3 times more y's than x)
