a. Write an expression for the total time required to bake a combination of muffins and bread if each batch is backed separately.

b. If Enrique makes 2 batches of muffins, how long will it take to bake all 10 batches?

A:

a. 500 - 20m
b. 460 minutes or 7 hours and 40 minutes.

1. 1. (2s-t^2)/(st^2) = (2*5-3^2)/(5*3^2)=
1/45.

2. -x-3y+4x-9y+2 = 3x - 12y + 2.

3. -4(-a+2b) - 3(a-5b) = 4a-8b-3a+15b =
a + 7b.

4. 5-(3m+2n) = 5-3m-2n.
