Q:
# A restaurant sold 350 less hotdogs than hamburgers. Altogether the restaurant sold 700 hotdogs and hamburgers. How many of each did they sell?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The restaurant sold 175 hotdogs and 525 hamburgers.Step-by-step explanation:Let the restaurant sold x hotdogs and y hamburgers.
Given the restaurant sold 350 more hamburgers than hotdogs.
So, we can write x + 350 = y ....... (1)
Again given that the number of total hotdogs and hamburgers sold in the restaurant is 700.
So, x + y = 700 ........ (2)
Solving equations (1) and (2) we get Β 2x + 350 =700
β 2x = 350
β x = 175
Then from equation (1) we get,
y = 350 + 175 = 525
Therefore, the restaurant sold 175 hotdogs and 525 hamburgers. (Answer)
