How many ounces of red beads will Juanita buy to break even?
How many ounces of gold beads will she buy?
6 ounces of red beads
6 ounces of gold beads
x + y = 12
x + 3y = 24
We can solve this with substitution or elimination. In this case, I would suggest elimination. Subtract the first equation from the second:
2y = 12
y = 6
Plug back into either equation to find x.
x = 6
