    Answer:

    cherry= 4ft

    maple = 2ft

    Step-by-step explanation:

    5.80c + 4.20m = 31.60

    when we set this equation to the side of page we see

    31.60 / 6 = 5.2

    if he used 6ft then we can see that 5.2 is the equation

    5.8cn  + 4.2mn = 5.2

    4(5.8c) + 2(4.2m) = 31.60

    proves the 5.2 was a higher distribution than the 4.2  

    = 4 cherry and 2 maple
