The dormitory

The dormitory accommodates 150 pupils in 42 rooms, some of which are triple and some are quadruple. Determine how many rooms are triple and how many quadruples.

Correct result:

a =  18
b =  24

Solution:


a+b = 42
3a+4b = 150

a+b = 42
3•a+4•b = 150

a+b = 42
3a+4b = 150

a = 18
b = 24
