Alexa has set up a lemonade stand outside her house and sells small cups and large cups of lemonade. Each small cups holds 8 ounces of lemonade and each large cup hold 16 ounces of lemonade. Alexa used 320 ounces of lemonade and sold twice as many small cups as large cups. Determine the number of small cups sold and the number of large cups sold.

l = large cups       amount of large cups = 16 x  ounces

small cups = 2x     amount of small cups = 8 (2x)      summed = 320 ounces

 

16x      +     8 (2x)       =    320        solve for 'x' the number of 16 ounce cups, the 8 ounce cups = 2x
