There are 5 big jars of sugar and 2 small jars of sugar in a kitchen. There is

a total of 8.35 kg of sugar in the jars. 2 big jars contain 0.3 kg more sugar

than 3 small jars. How much sugar is there in all the big jars?

2 big jars contain 0.3 kg more sugar

than 3 small jars

2b = 3s + .3

re-arrange to s = (2b-.3)/3

5b + 2s = 8.35 total now substitute in the red equation for 's'

5b + 2(2b-.3)/3 = 8.35

b = 1.35 kg per jar now multiply by 5 (since there are 5 big jars).......
