A magazine earned $68 million in 1998 from advertising revenue and
subscriptions. If the advertising revenue was 6 times the subscription revenue, how much did the magazine earn from advertising?
Define some variables.
Let a represent the revenue due to advertising.
Let s represent the revenue due to subscription.
You are told that together, they amount to 68 million.
So,
a + s = 68
Then, you are told that advertising was 6 times bigger than subscription.
a = 6s
You get two equations with two unknowns. Solve for a, the earning from magazine.
