When 2 dozen cans of food are placed in a bucket, the mass is 4560 g. When 18 cans of food are placed in the same bucket, the mass is 3480 g. Find the mass of the bucket?

• math -

X = wt. of each can 0f food,
Y = WT. OF each bucket,

24X + Y = 4560
18X + Y = 3480
Solve by elimination(subtract),
6X = 1080,
X = 180
Substitute 180 for X in 1st Eq:
24 * 180 + Y = 4560,
4320 + Y = 4560,
Y = 4560 - 4320 = 240 Grams.
