let P = pounds of potatoes
C = pounds of carrots
P(.06) + C(.08) = 24000a farmer makes .06$ profit on each pound of potatoes he makes. He also makes .08 $ profit on each pound of carrots he makes ... total amount of profit is 24,000$
P = 2CHe makes twice as much potatoes than carrots.
solve the system of equations for P and C.
