A bank teller has 54 $5 and $20 bills in her cash drawer. The value of the bills is $780. How many $5 bills are there?
 
Let x equal the number of $5 bills
Let y equal the number of $20 bills
We know that together the number of $5 bills and the $20 bills is 54, so that is the first equation.
x + y = 54
Next the total value of the bills combined is $780, that is the second equation.
5x + 20y = 780
 
Now that we have our two equations we can solve by substitution. To do so we have to rearrange our first equation solving for one of the variables
 
x + y = 54
– x         – x
y = 54 – x
 
Next we will substitute this equation into the second, and solve.
 
5x + 20(54 – x) = 780        (multiply 20 and 54, and multiply 20 and – x)
 
5x + 1080 – 20x = 780      (combine 5x and – 20x)
 
-15x + 1080 = 780         (subtract 1080 from both sides)
  
-15x = -300                (divide by -15) 
 
x = 20 
 
 
Now that we have our x value, we can solve for y using our first equation.
 
20 + y = 54    (subtract 20 from each side)
 
y = 34
 
Finally, to check the answers you substitute them into both of the equations.
 
20 + 34 = 54
        54 = 54   TRUE
 
5(20) + 20(34) = 780
       100 + 680 = 780
                 780 = 780 TRUE
 
The final answer is there are 20 – $5 bills, and 34 – $20 bills.

The Problem: (x) number of bracelets are sold at $8 each and (y) number of necklaces at $11 each. Rosaria  paid a total of $1140. How many bracelets and how many necklaces did she purchase?
The Solution:
 
1.)  Listed are the known factors:
o Let the number of bracelets be represented by the variable:    x

In which each x number of bracelets are priced at $8

o Let the number of necklaces be represented by the variable:   y

In which each y number of necklaces are priced at $11

 
2.)  Listed are the relationships between x and y 
o x + y = 120
o $8x + $11y = $1140
 
3.)  I will be using both elimination and substitution process to solve this problem
.

First I’d use the elimination process to solve the system of equations:  

o -8[x + y = 120]                                          -8x – 8y    = -(960)    (multiply equation by -8)
                                                                      8x + 11y  = 1140     (eliminate x- variable)
o $8x + $11y = $1140                                           3y   = 180        (isolate y through division)
                                                                                                      3          3
                                                                                             y   = 60             (solve)
 
 

Second I’d use the substitution process to solve for the x-variable:

 
o x + y = 120                                    x + (60) =  120    (substitute known variable: y)
                                                                   x   =  60     (simple subtraction to isolate x)
o $8x + $11y = $1140                               x   =  60       (solve)
                                                                                                                                
Checking the answers:
o x + y = 120                             (60) +     (60) =    120   (substitute known variables)
                                                8(60) + 11(60) =    1140 (Solve)
o $8x + $11y = $1140
 
SOLUTION: Rosaria purchased 60 bracelets and 60  necklaces.
