A jeweler had a fixed amount of gold to make bracelets and necklaces. The amount of gold in each bracelet is 7 grams and the amount of gold in each necklace is 20 grams. The jeweler used 109 grams of gold and made 4 more bracelets than necklaces. Determine the number of bracelets made and the number of necklaces made

#1**+2 **

#Necklace = x

Then #Bracelets = x +4

amount of necklace gold = 20*x

amount of gold in bracelet = 7*(x+4) added together = 109 gm

20x + 7(x+4) = 109 solve for 'x' = number of necklaces then bracelets = x+4
