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
