need some help on an algebra question. First we had to put the different combinations of 6 rabbits in 2 cages. Like 2 rabbits in the red cage and 4 rabbits in the blue cage...etc. Then it says to write an equation using variables that represent the rabbits and be sure to tell what each variable represents in the equation. I'm not sure what to do. Would you do 2r + 4b = 6 where r is rabbits in the red cage and b is rabbits in the blue cage or would you do somethin else? Thanks
