Actually, if 20% more of the ouback model is sold than the bushwalker, then (because you end up with 120% of the number of bushwalkers).
So substitute this into your other equation.
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
Well I figured some more out. Since there is 20 percent more of sold than that means
If I sub that in I get a=368.75 and b=295
Is this right?
