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 of corn to leave 5 times more peas than corn cans.

How many cans of each kind were in the store?

Correct answer:

a =  205
b =  205

Step-by-step explanation:

a=b a10=5(b166)  a10=5(a166) a10=5a830 820=4a 205=a 205=b

a-10 = 5(b-166)

a-10 = 5•(b-166)

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

a = 205
b = 205

Our linear equations calculator calculates it.
b=(5 16610)/(51)=205
