so... I think we have a total of 123 pounds
0.75c+0.5h=123// Subtract 1h from both sides: c=123-h// Subtract 0.75h from both sides:0.5c=74-0.75h/ Multiply both sides by two:c=148-1.5h148-1.5h = 123-h// Add H to both sides.148-0.5h = 123/ Subtract 148 from both sides.-0.5h = -25/ Multiply both sides by -1.0.5h = 25/ Multiply both sides by 2.h = 50
// Replace h with 50.0.75(50)+0.5c=74/ Multiply.37.5+0.5c=74// Subtract 37.5 from both sides.0.5c=36.5// Multiply both sides by 2.c = 73h = 50c = 73h+c=123
thats it! 50 pounds of chocolate and 73 pounds of hard candy!
that wasn't too hard!
