if p-28=10/3(h-5) how in the world do I figure out how many pounds of oranges a 18ft & 20 ft tree would make.

I can get this far and just can catch onto the rest.

Please help!

  • Algebra -

    P - 28 = (10/3)(h-5),
    P = (10/3)(h-5) = (10/3)(18-5) = 43.3.

    P = (10/3)(20-5) = 50.

  • Algebra -

    Correction.

    P = 43.3 + 28 = 71.3.

    P = 50 + 28 = 78.
