A jeweler had a fixed amount of gold to make bracelets and necklaces. The amount of gold in each bracelet is 6 grams and the amount of gold in each necklace is 16 grams. The jeweler made a total of 7 bracelets and necklaces using 72 grams of gold. Determine the number of bracelets made and the number of necklaces made.

n = necklaces amount of gold in necklaces = 16n

b = 7-n amount of gold ib bracelets = 6 (7-n) summed = 72 grams

16n + 6(7-n) = 72 solve for 'n' the number of necklaces , then bracelets = 7-n
