The mother bought five boxes of milk and 7 kg of potatoes and paid a total of CZK 147. Aunt bought seven boxes of milk and 3 kg of potatoes and paid 131 CZK. What is the price of one carton of milk and 1 kg of potatoes? How would CZK together have saved if bought at the supermarket, where they have the same price of milk, but the potatoes are 20% cheaper?

Correct answer:

x =  14 Kc
y =  11 Kc
z =  22 Kc

Step-by-step explanation:

5x+7y=147 7x+3y=131  5 x+7 y=147 7 x+3 y=131  5x+7y=147 7x+3y=131  Pivot:Row1Row2 7x+3y=131 5x+7y=147  Row275 Row1Row2 7x+3y=131 4.86y=53.43  y=4.8571428653.42857143=11 x=71313y=71313 11=14=14 Kc  x=14 y=11
p=20%=10020=51=0.2  y2=p y=0.2 11=511=2.2 Kc/kg z=(3+7) y2=(3+7) 2.2=22 Kc
