I am confused need help
a computer store sold a total of 300 items last month. the store sold six times as many hard drives as they did CDRoM drives, and half as many floppy drives as hard drives. Based on this information,, how many of each item were sold?
Let X = number of hd.
Y = number of cd
Z = number of fl/d.
=======================
You know:
X + Y + Z = 300
The problem tells you that the store sold six times as many hard drives as cd Rom so you know 6Y = X.
The problem tells you that the store sold 1/2 as many floppy drives as hard drives; therefore, 1/2 X = Z
===============================
Using X + Y + Z= 300, just substitute the value of Y in terms of X (from above which is Y= 1/6 X) and the value of Z in terms of X and solve for X.
I hope this helps. We shall be happy to check your work if you post it.
I really don't understand, i am new at this and have 4 anwser to it don't know which one because don't know how to get to the answer and they are:
1.30hd,90fl/d and 180 cd
2.40",20" and 240 "
3.180hd,90fl, and 30cd
4, 240hd, 20fl,and 40cd
My problem is how to get this anwser, could u explain to me how ge to the anwer of course knowing the anwer, i will understand.
If the store sold 1 cd / 6x as many hd = 6 / half as many floppy = 3 / 1 + 6 + 3 = 10.
They are sold in ratios of 10.
divide 10 into 300 etc etc dose this help.

thanks i still don't get it but i am working on it. ok thanks again.
Obviously you have interpreted four different ways and three of those ways are not right. Do what I suggested and post your work so we can give you some guidance as to where you are going wrong. I have given you the three equations you need to solve the problem; the remainder is just arithmetic. I don't want to work the problem for you. I want you to understand how to do the problem.
