Suppose you plan to spend no more than $24 on meat for a cookout. Hamburger costs $3.00/Ib and chicken wings cost $2.40/Ib. Write and graph an equation to find three possible combinations of hamburger and chicken wings you can buy.


  1. Equation: 3x + 2.4y =24

    A) 8 hamburgers
    B)10 chicken wings
    C)5 chicken wings and 4 burgers
