All sacks of sugar have the same weight. All sacks of flour also have the same weight, but not necessarily the same as the weight of the sacks of sugar. Suppose that two sacks of sugar together with three sacks of flour weigh no more than  pounds, and that the weight of a sack of flour is no more than  pounds more than the weight of two sacks of sugar. What is the largest possible weight (in pounds) of a sack of flour?

I agree with Cal. The question is literally the exact same except the numbers. It will not take much mental effort to finish the problem using CPhill's method.

AltShaka, are you just on this website to cheat and get free answers? If so, get off. Why does it even matter if a problem is slightly different. Do you even take time to read explanations? You just want others to do the problem and mooch off their work, isn't it?

Hello AltShaka! I'm just a kid who is struggling through the quarantine too!

There is a problem with your post, it seems that you are missing numbers! That means you just copy-pasted the problem from whatever homework site you were using and missed the LaTeX.

The website here is NOT to give you free answers. Maybe include an explanation of what you've done so far. Then it would be more reasonable for people to give you a solution. Appreciate some hints. Maybe try doing the problem with the same process as the hint.

AltShaka,

I have looked on his account. He hasn't given free answers, although the answers were boxed and bolded. It depends on the QUESTION ASKER if the answer is "free or not".

If a question asker just looks at the answer and types it in and moves on, then the answer is free. If a question asker learns from the explanation, then the answer was not free.

I am friends with CalculatorUser in real life. I saw your previous posts asking CU and CPhill directly to help, by the looks of it, you seem to be pushing them to answer your question. Would they be giving free answers? They always include at least some explanation and work.

Please take DragonLord's response seriously and improve the quality of your questions next time! You still forgot to include numbers in your question!

When I post a problem, I will enter the problem with numbers, and below it, show my work process. Then, they know where I've gotten and that at least I tried. You posted this problem carelessly, without numbers because of LaTeX, and does not include any of your work. Did I directly beg for answers from a certain person? No. If someone answers my problem I always thank them and read their explanations thoroughly, until I understand the problem. Then, I completely redo the problem trying not to look at their explanations, so I can grasp the meaning. Furthermore, you are directly asking for certain people to answer your problems. That's basically stating that one person is better than another. If you haven't noticed, I box my answers to make things neat and look better, not to feed people answers. I also give them an explanation, and if they don't read my explanations, I can't stop them. This ends here. That is final.

AltShaka, you should not cheat on your homework.
