Question

At a particular restaurant, each slider has 350 calories and each onion ring has 40
calories. A combination meal with sliders and onion rings has a total of 11 sliders and
onion rings altogether and contains 1370 calories. Write a system of equations that
could be used to determine the number of sliders in the combination meal and the
number of onion rings in the combination meal. Define the variables that you use to
write the system.

Using a system of equations, it is found that there are 3 sliders and 8 onion rings in the combination meal.

### What is a system of equations?

A system of equations is when two or more variables are related, and equations are built to find the values of each variable.
In this problem, the variables are given as follows:
• Variable x: Number of sliders in the combination.
• Variable y: Number of onion rings in the combination.
The meal has a total of 11 sliders and onion rings, hence:
x + y = 11.
The meal contains 1370 calories, hence, considering the calorie load of each food, we have that:
350x + 40x = 1370.
From the first equation, we have that:
y = 11 – x.
Replacing in the second, we have that:
350x + 40(11 – x) = 1370
310x = 930.
x = 930/310
x = 3.
y = 11 – x = 11 – 3 = 8.
There are 3 sliders and 8 onion rings in the combination meal.
