  1. N*20 + (N-10)10=850

    check that.

  2. Thanks that was all that I needed now let me work on my problem and tell if I got the correct answer.

    N*20+(N-10)10=850
    20n+20n-200+10=850
    40n-190=850
    n=26

  3. That works out correctly.

    26 * $5 = #130
    36 * $20 = $720

    130 + 720 = 850
