Cindy works at the school store. she has twenty-four pencils and thirty-six pens. how many bags of pencils and pens can she fill if she puts the same number of pencils and the same number of pens in each bag and uses them all? find all the possibilities. explain. your reasoning
f=-2 g= 111.5
-1x to both sides
you have 1f=3x
then just subtract 3x to both sides
you will have -2f
to get g you will have to simplify the problem first, you will have
you would have to get rid of x first so you subtract 1x from both sides
now you will have g = 2x - 224 you will have to subtract -224 from 1g and you will get -223g
you should have -223g=2x now divide -223 by 2x and you should get
111.5 so g=111.5
we have a parabola and a small line shown in the graph.
the parabola goes upto x = 2 but does not reach that very value. so x = 2 starts on the line above where x = 2 and ends just before x = 4.
therefore, this function can be modeled by:
