Let x = the number of Megadose Supras, y = the number of Crazy Caps, and z = the number of D-Free Acs you should take.
The given data can be set up in a table as follows:
Megadose Supras (x) |
Crazy Caps (y) |
D-Free Acs (z) |
Total Required | |
Vitamin C | 50 | 100 | 50 | 350 |
Vitamin A | 1,000 | 200 | 500 | 4,200 |
Vitamin D | 100 | 100 | 0 | 400 |
This gives the following system of linear equations
The solution is
