Kaelyn wants to make 3 times as many scarves as hats and use 5 kilograms of yarn. Let h be the number of hats Kaelyn makes and s be the number of scarves she makes.

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:10 hats and 30 scarvesStep-by-step explanation: Let h be the number of hats Kaelyn makes and s be the number of scarves she makes.Kaelyn wants to make 3 times as many scarves as hats, sos = 3hEach hat uses 0.2 kilograms of yarn, then h hats use 0.2h kg of yarn.Each scarf uses 0.1 kilograms of yarn, then s scarves use 0.1s kg of yarn.Kaelyn wants to use 5 kilograms of yarn, thus0.2h + 0.1s = 5You get the system of two equations:[tex]\left\{\begin{array}{l}s=3h\\ \\0.2h+0.1s=5\end{array}\right.[/tex]Substitute the first equation into the second[tex]0.2h+0.1\cdot 3h=5\\ \\0.2h+0.3h=5\\ \\0.5h=5\\Β \\5h=50\\ \\h=10\\ \\s=3\cdot 10=30[/tex]
