Juan visited a candy store and purchased 7 pounds of candy consisting of Atomic Fireballs and Gummi Bears. Atomic Fireballs cost $4.25 per pound and Gummi Bears were on sale for $1.25 per pound. Juan spent a total of $14.75, before taxes. Let x represent the number of pounds of Atomic Fireballs and y represent the number of pounds of Gummi Bears uan purchased. Which of the following graphically represents this situation?

Accepted Solution

The answer is the graph on picture #2.

The Q says for fireballs to be x and gummy bears to be y. So they correspond to their axis. Knowing this you get rid of the last 2 graphs. When you plug in these vertexes into the equations, the only right answer is the graph in picture 2.
