Q:
# Your family goes to a southern style restaurant for dinner. There are 6 people in your family. Some order the chicken dinner for $14 and some order the steak dinner for $17. If the total bill was $99 l, how many people ordered each dinner?

Accepted Solution

A:

Ok. You can use equations to find out what number of each meal was eaten.

x*14+y*17=99

If you solve for x and y (I used guess and check- there's only a few possible combinations) and got one chicken dinner and five steak dinners.
