Jason unpacked 51 kilograms of bananas and apples. The bananas came in 9-kilogram bags and the apples came in 8-kilogram bags. In all, Jason unpacked 6 bags of fruit. How many bags of bananas and bags of apples did he unpack?

b = banana bags                  amount = 9 b

a = apple bags = 6-b             amount = 8 (6-b)             summed , the amounts = 51

 

 

9b        +     8(6-b)   = 51         solve for b    then   a = 6-b
