than one cheeseburger. What is the cost of a cheeseburger? A

55. Computing a Refund The grocery store we use does not
mark prices on its goods. My wife went to ts store, bought
three 1-pound packages of bacon and two cartons of eggs,
and paid a total of \$7.45. Not knowing that she went to the
store, I also went to the same store, purchased two 1-pound
packages of bacon and three cartons of eggs, and paid a
total of \$6.45. Now we want to return two 1-pound pack-
ages of bacon and two cartons of eggs. How much will be
refunded?
61. Theater Revenues A Broadway theater has 500 seats, divid.
ed into orchestra, main, and balcony seating. Orchestra seat
sell for \$50, main seats for \$35, and balcony seats for \$25.1
all the seats are sold, the gross revenue to the theater is
\$17,100. If all the main and balcony seats are sold, but only
half the orchestra seats are sold, the gross revenue is \$14,600.
How many are there of each kind of seat?
62. Theater Revenues A movie theater charges \$8.00 for
adults, \$4.50 for cldren, and \$6.00 for senior citizens. One
day the theater sold 405 tickets and collected \$2320 in
receipts. There were twice as many cldren’s tickets sold as
went to the theater that day?
56. Blending Coffees A coffee manufacturer wants to market a
new blend of coffee that will cost \$5 per pound by mixing
\$3.75-per-pound coffee and \$8-per-pound coffee. What
amounts of the \$3.75-per-pound coffee and \$8-per-pound
coffee should be blended to obtain the desired mixture?
63. Investments Kelly has \$20,000 to invest. As her financial
planner, you recommend that she diversify into three invest-
ments: Treasury Bills that yield 5% simple interest, Treasul
Bonds that yield 7% simple interest, and corporate bon
that yield 10% simple interest. Kelly wishes to earn \$1390
per year in income. Also, Kelly wants her investment in

pounds.]
57. Pharmacy A doctor’s prescription calls for a daily intake of
liquid containing 40 mg of vitamin C and 30 mg of vitamin
D. Your pharmacy stocks two liquids that can be used: one
contains 20% vitamin C and 30% vitamin D, the other 40%
vitamin C and 20% vitamin D. How many milligrams of
each liquid should be mixed to fill the prescription?
Treasury Bills to be \$3000 more than her investment in col
porate bonds. How much money should Kelly place in each
investment?

variables that has:
58. Pharmacy A doctor’s prescription calls for the creation of
pills that contain 12 units of vitamin B12 and 12 units of vit-
amin E. Your pharmacy stocks two powders that can be used
to make these pills: one contains 20% vitamin B12 and 30%
vitamin E, the other 40% vitamin B12 and 20% vitamin E.
How many units of each powder should be mixed in each
(a) No solution
(b) Exactly one solution
(c) Infinitely many solutions

Give the three systems to a friend to solve and critique.
59. Diet Preparation A 600- to 700-pound yearling horse needs
33.0 grams of calcium and 21.0 grams of phosphorus per
day for a healthy diet. A farmer provides a combination of
rolled oats and molasses to provide those nutrients. Rolled
oats provide 0.41 grams of calcium per pound and
