2 Answer

  • I believe its just $4.25k+$2.25p=$18
  • Answer:

    Equation is 4.25k + 2.25p = 18

    Step-by-step 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
