###### Question:

## Answers

Equation : 1.40a + 1.25b = 12

[tex]1.40a+1.25b=12[/tex].

Step-by-step explanation:

Let 'a' be the number of pounds of apples and 'b' the number of pounds of bananas.

We have been given that Lena is buying $12 worth of fruit to bring as a class snack. Apples are $1.40 per pound and bananas are $1.25 per pound.

We know that standard form of equation is in format [tex]Ax+By=C[/tex], where A, B and C are integers.

Since the cost of per pound of apples is $1.40, so cost of 'a' pounds of apples would be [tex]1.40a[/tex].

Since the cost of per pound of bananas is $1.25, so cost of 'b' pounds of apples would be [tex]1.25b[/tex].

We are also told that the fruits are worth $12, we can represent this information in an equation as:

[tex]1.40a+1.25b=12[/tex]

Therefore, the equation [tex]1.40a+1.25b=12[/tex] represents the given scenario in standard form of equation.

$12 = $1.40a + $1.25b

think this is it... Hope this helps... :)

1.40a + 1.25b = 12

1.40 is the price of apples, a is the amount of apples,

1.25 is the price of bananas, b is the amount of bananas.

1.40a + 1.25b =12

Step-by-step explanation:

Data:

$12 of fruit

1.40 Apples per pound, Apples=a

1.25 Bananas per pound, Bananas=b

The equation standard form Ax+By=C

So we have 1.40a + 1.25b =12

equation : 1.40a + 1.25b = 12
