I decide to hold a little bake sale one weekend where I will be selling jumbo cupcakes at 3.50 each and cookies at 1.25 each. I have a total of 250 in both cupcakes and cookies. At the end of my bake sale I have sold all the cupcakes and cookies I baked and made a total of 506.00. How many total cupcakes did I have and how many cookies?

Hello Guest!

 

\(3.50j+1.25(250-j)=506\\ 3.5j+312.5-1.25j=506\\ 3.5j-1.25j=506-312.5\\ 2.25j=193.5\)

\(j=86\)  Jumbo-Cupcakes

\(c=250-86\)

\(c=164\)   cookies
