###### Question:

## Answers

15x + 12y = 489 hope this helps

[tex]15x+12y = 489[/tex]

Step-by-step explanation:

For the Equation to be accurate you need to calculate the amount of adult shirts and youth shirts sold and multiply those numbers by their corresponding prices. Since both of these values are unknown we would need an Algebraic Equation with two variables like the following.

[tex]15x+12y = 489[/tex]

Where x is the number of adult shirts sold and y is the number of youth shirts sold.

I hope this answered your question. If you have any more questions feel free to ask away at

15x + 12y = 489

But we need another statement to create second equation

x, the number of adult shirts

y, the number of youth shirts

$15 for an adult shirt and $12 for a youth shirt. The total charge for a shirt order was $489.

15x + 12y = 489

Answer

15x + 12y = 489

Given the statement: A t-shirt shop charges $15 for an adult shirt , $12 for a youth shirt and the total charge for a shirt order was $489.

Let x be the number of adult shirts sold.

and y be the number of youth shirts sold.

as per the given statement;

a shop charges t-shirt for an adult shirt is $ 15

then, total charge of t-shirt for an adult shirt is 15x

Similarly,

a shop charges t-shirt for an youth shirt is $12

then, total charge of t-shirt for an youth shirt is 12y.

Then;

Total charges for a shirt order = total charge for an adult shirt+ total charge for an youth shirt.

⇒ 489 = 15x+12y or

15x+12y =489

Therefore, the equation which can be used to represent x, the number of adult shirts sold and y the number of youth shirts sold is; 15x+12y =489

The answer to this question is C : 15x + 12y = 489.

WHY?

It asks for the number of adult shirts (x represents how much was sold) and youth shirts (y represents how much was sold). $15 was for an adult shirt and $12 was for a youth shirt.

THAT'S WHY

15x + 12y = 489

^ + ^ = ^

adult + youth = total amount
