  • Algebra -

    number of hamburgers ---- x
    number of turkeyburgs --- 21-x

    weight of hamburgers = (1/3)x
    weight of turkeyburgs = (1/4)(21-x

    so (1/3)x = (1/4)(21-x)
    times 12 , the LCD
    4x = 3(21-x)
    4x = 63-3x
    7x = 63
    x = 9

    so 9 hamburgers and 12 turkeyb's
