chicken delight sells whole-chicken dinners for $12 and half-chicken dinners for $8. yesterday they sold a total of 400 dinners and took in $4200. how many of each size dinners were sold?

    Use algebra to solve this. Let x be the number of whole-chicken dinners sold, and y be the number of half-chicken dinners.

    x + y = 400 (the number sold)
    12x + 6y = 4200 (gross receipts)
    12x + 12y = 4800
    6y = 600
    Two more steps and you will have the answer. You finish the problem.
