Yolanda has two dogs, Thor and Jack. Thor eats 30 lbs of food per month and dog treats that weigh a quarter of a pound each. Jack eats 25 lbs of food per month and dog treats that weigh a half a pound each.
How many treats must the dogs eat in order to eat the same amount in pounds per month? What is that amount of food? (Note: number 5 might be a helpful place to start with this problem)
The product of two numbers of 48. The difference of those numbers is 2.
What are the two numbers?Define your variables.Write a system of equations.
Order the list to show how you would solve this system of inequalities.
use the slope 5/2 and continue to plot points going up five to the right two
connect your points with a solid line
shade the area where both shaded areas would overlap
connect your points with a dashed line
plot a point at 9 on the y axis
plot a point at -9 on the y axis
use the slope -2 and continue to plot points going down two to the right one
use a point like (0,0) to determine where to shade for each inequality
Solve the system of equations by graphing by hand. report your solution and check that your solution is correct.
Define the variables in this question. (Note: this is expanding from question 1)
Let T be the number of treats Thor and Jack eat
Let T be the pounds of food that Thor eats
Let F be the total pounds of food and treats that Thor and Jack eat
Let J be the pounds of food that Jack eats
Write the system of equations for this situation. Use capital letters for your variables and no spaces in the equations. use one space to separate the equations.
In words explain the meaning of the solution.
