A barbecue manufacturer makes 2 models, the Outback and Bush Walker. It is known that 20 percent more of the Outback model is sold than the Bush Walker. A profit of $200 is made on each Outback sold but$350 is made on each Bush Walker. If during the next year a profit of $177000 is planned, how many of each barbecue must be sold? How would I go about doing this? I've already tried but I can't seem to get a start. Can someone start me off? All I have atm is Let a be the total number of Outbacks sold and b is Bushwalkers sold$\displaystyle 200a+350b = 177000 $Well I figured some more out. Since there is 20 percent more of$\displaystyle a$sold than$\displaystyle b$that means$\displaystyle b=0.8a$If I sub that in I get a=368.75 and b=295 Is this right? 2. Actually, if 20% more of the ouback model is sold than the bushwalker, then$\displaystyle \displaystyle a = 1.2 b\$ (because you end up with 120% of the number of bushwalkers).
