Word Problem 8
Problem 8: There are 15 tables in Camille’s Cafe. Some of those tables can seat 6 people, and the rest of them can only seat 4 people. If a maximum of 76 people can be seated at Camille’s Cafe, how many 6-people tables does the cafe have?
Let there are ‘x’ 6-people tables and ‘y’ 4-people tables
Total tables are 15, so;
If 6 people sit on x 6-people table and 4 people sit on all y 4people table then it should accommodate 76 people in total ;
Solving these eqs simultaneously we get;
so there are 8 6-people table.
Put x value in eq 1
so there are 7 4-people tables.
