Question

Jerry’s strips of dry meat joint sells of these two types of dry meat. he sells twice as many bags of dried beef as he does bags of dried turkey . His profit from the dryed beef is a 1.50 per bag while his profit for dryed turkey is a $2 per bag how many bags of each must he sell to profit for $ 500. please help

## Answers ( No )

Assume Jerry sells x bags of dried turkey, and 2x bags of dried beef. He profits ($2)x on dried turkey, and ($1.5)(2x) on the dried beef. Therefore, his total profit is 2x + 3x = 5x. Since this is equivalent to $500, we can solve

5x = 500

x = 100

Therefore, Jerry must sell 100 bags of dried turkey and 200 bags of dried beef.
