Margaret is helping he neighbor with some yard work. The neighbor pays Margaret $0.75 for each bucket of weeds pulled and $1.50 for each new petunia planted. When Margaret finished she had twice as many empty pots as buckets of weeds and had earned $30 helping in the yard. How many buckets of weeds did Margaret pull? How many petunias did she plant?

Let the number of buckets of weeds = N.....then....the number of pots of petunias =  2N

 

So

 

N ( amount paid for each bucket of weeds) + 2N (amount paid for each petunia pot )  = $30

 

N ( .75)  + 2N (1.50)  = $30     simplify

 

.75N + 3N  = 30

 

3.75N  = 30       divide both sides by 3.75

 

N = 8   =  buckets of weeds     

 

2N  = 16  = pots of petunias
