Unit 3 Discussion


Systems of equations are used in many cost models in the real world. Here is an example scenario for you to consider.

  • Suppose you are running a carnival. You are selling hamburgers and sodas. A hamburger is $1.75 and a soda is .75. 
  • You expect to make a total of $117.50 for the day
  • You also plan to sell 120 hamburgers and sodas
  • How many sodas and hamburgers will you sell each? 
  • Suppose you decide to change the price ratio between hamburgers and soda’s so that they produce a more equal consumption of hamburgers and sodas.
    • What would you change the price to for each and why?
    • What would be the new amount of hamburgers and soda each at your price points?
