Write a system of equations to describe the situation below, solve using substitution, and fill in the blanks.

Caleb and his mom are planting vegetables in their garden. Caleb has finished planting 11 rows of carrots so far and is planting new rows at a rate of 4 rows per hour. His mom has finished 1 row of tomatoes and will continue planting at 5 rows per hour.

How long will that take?

Caleb and his mom will each be done planting ? Rows in ? Hours.

  1. Answer:
    Let C represent the total cost of each deal  
    Let T be the number of trips down the water slide
    C = 32        for the 1st deal since the cost is the same regardless of how much she rides  
    C = 18 + T  for the 2nd deal
    To find when the two costs are equal set them equal to each other and solve for T
    32 = 18 + T
    T = 14  trips
    The cost must be $32 since that is the only cost possible for the 1st deal
