The store

The store received the same number of cans of peas and corn. The first day sold 10 cans of peas and 166 cans ofcorn so that left 5 times more peas than corn cans.

How many cans of each kind were in the store?

Result

a =  205
b =  205

Solution:

a=b a10=5(b166)  a10=5(a166) a10=5a830 820=4a 205=a 205=ba=b \ \\ a-10 = 5(b-166) \ \\ \ \\ a-10 = 5(a-166) \ \\ a-10 = 5 a - 830 \ \\ 820 = 4 a \ \\ 205 = a \ \\ 205 = b

a=b
a-10 = 5(b-166)

a-b = 0
a-5b = -820

a = 205
b = 205

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
b=(5 16610)/(51)=205b=(5 \cdot \ 166-10)/(5-1)=205
