Q:
# The soccer team collected $800 at a car wash fundraiser. They charged $5.00 for small vehicles and $10.00 for larger vehicles. The amount collected can be modeled by the equation 5 x plus 10 y equals 800, where x represents the number of small vehicles and y represents the number of larger vehicles. If the number of larger vehicles washed was 50, how many small vehicles were washed in total?

Accepted Solution

A:

5x + 10y = 800 y = 5010y = 10*50 = 500800 - 500 = 300300/5 = 60x = 605(60) + 10(50) = 80060 small vehicles were washed in total
