Q:
# 9. A vendor is selling Coke and Sprite. He sold three times as many Cokes as Sprites. Ifhe sells 76 sodas in all, how many Cokes were sold? How many Sprites?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The number of sprites old = 19The number of cokes sold = 57 Step-by-step explanation:Let us assume the number of sprites sold = mSo, the number of cokes sold = 3 times (Number of sprites) =3 x (m) = 3 mAlso, the total number of sodas sold = 76⇒ The number of (Sprites + coke) sold = 76or, m + 3 m = 76⇒ 4 m = 76⇒ m = 76 / 4 = 1 9or, m = 19Hence the number of sprites old = m = 19And the number of cokes sold = 3 m = 3 x 19 = 57
