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.

whole 250.half 150
