Accepted Solution

A:

To solve this question, I did an equation:

0.75x + 1.20y = 120

0.75(95) + 1.20(35) = 120

Then multiply:

71.25 + 42 = 120

Now to check:

71.25 + 42 = 113.25

Answer: 120 - 113.25 = $6.75 Hope this helps

0.75x + 1.20y = 120

0.75(95) + 1.20(35) = 120

Then multiply:

71.25 + 42 = 120

Now to check:

71.25 + 42 = 113.25

Answer: 120 - 113.25 = $6.75 Hope this helps
