Answer:
Equation is 4.25k + 2.25p = 18
Stepbystep explanation:
The grocery store sells kumquats for $4.25 a pound and Asian pears for $2.25 a pound.
Price of kumquats = 4.25 $
Price of Asian pears = 2.25 $
Weights of kumquats k and Asian pears p that a customer could buy with $18
Weight of kumquats bought = k
Weight of Asian pear bought = p
Total money = 18 $
We have
4.25 x k + 2.25 x p = 18
4.25k + 2.25p = 18
Equation is 4.25k + 2.25p = 18
