The packages in a mail driver’s truck weigh a total of 950 pounds. The large packages weigh 20 pounds each and the small packages weigh 10 pounds each. If he has 10 more large packages than small packages, how many large and small packages are on the truck?

x = small pkgs

10x = weight of small pkgs

x+10 = # lge pkgs

20(x+10) = wt of lge pkgs

10x + 20(x+10) = 950 pounds

30x + 200 = 950

30x = 750

x = 25 small packages x+10 = 35 large packages
