A summer camp is organizing a hike and needs to buy granola bars for the campers. The granola bars come in small boxes and large boxes. Each small box has 10 granola bars and each large box has 30 granola bars. The camp bought a total of 6 boxes that have 100 granola bars altogether. Write a system of equations that could be used to determine the number of small boxes purchased and the number of large boxes purchased. Define the variables that you use to write the system.

Let the number of small boxes = S

Let the number of large boxes = L

 

S  +  L = 6..................................(1)

10S  +  30L =100......................(2), solve for S, L

 

S=4 - number of small boxes

L= 2 - number of large boxes.
