Nick works two jobs to pay for college. He tutors for $15 per hour and also works as a bag boy for $8 per hour. Due to his class and study schedule, Nick is only able to work up to 20 hours per week but must earn at least $150 per week. If t represents the number of hours Nick tutors and b represents the number of hours he works as a bag boy, which system of inequalities represents this scenario?
t + b 20
15t + 8b = 150 t + b 20
15t + 8b 150 t + b 20
15t + 8b 150 None of the systems shown represent this scenario.
Question 7
(05.02)<object:standard:macc.912.a–rei.3.5>
Two systems of equations are shown below:
System A

System B

2x + y = 5

10x + 19y = 1

4x + 6y = 2

4x + 6y = 2

Which of the following statements is correct about the two systems of equations?
They will have the same solutions because the first equation of System B is obtained by adding the first equation of System A to 2 times the second equation of System A. They will have the same solution because the first equation of System B is obtained by adding the first equation of System A to 3 times the second equation of System A. The value of x for System B will be –5 times the value of x for System A because the coefficient of x in the first equation of System B is –5 times the coefficient of x in the first equation of System A. The value of x for System A will be equal to the value of y for System B because the first equation of System B is obtained by adding –12 to the first equation of System A and the second equations are identical.

Maya had $27. She spent all the money on buying 3 burgers for $x each and 2 sandwiches for $y each. If Maya had bought 2 burgers and 1 sandwich, she would have been left with $11.
A student concluded that the price of each burger is $5 and the price of each sandwich is $6. Which statement best justifies whether the student’s conclusion is correct or incorrect?
The student’s conclusion is correct because the solution to the system of equations 3x + 2y = 11 and 2x + y = 16 is (5, 6).
