# A candle

A candle shop sells scented candles for \$16 each and unscented candles for \$10 each. The shop sells 28 candles today and makes \$400.

a. Write a system of linear equations that represents the situation.

b. Solve the system to answer the questions: How many candles did the shop sell today? How many unscented candles did the shop sell today?

Result

a =  20
b =  8

#### Solution:

16a + 10b = 400
a+b = 28

16a+10b = 400
a+b = 28

a = 20
b = 8
