For the quarterly meeting this month, she reserved 5 conference rooms and 2 ballrooms, which can seat a total of 138 attendees. For safety training next month, she reserved 5 conference rooms and 4 ballrooms, which can seat 216 attendees. How many attendees can each room accommodate? Each conference room can accommodate  _____ attendees, and every ballroom can accommodate  _____ attendees.

5C + 4B = 216     and

5C + 2B = 138     Subtract 2nd equation from first

        2B = 78    B=39

 

5C + 2(39) = 138

5C= 60        C = 12
