# Glass

Trader ordered from the manufacturer 200 cut glass. The manufacturer confirmed the order that the glass in boxes sent a kit containing either four or six glasses. Total sent 41 boxes.
a) How many boxes will contain only 4 glasses?
b) How many boxes will contain 6 glasses?

Result

a =  23
b =  18

#### Solution:

a+b=41
4a + 6b = 200

a+b = 41
4a+6b = 200

a = 23
b = 18
