Beth and Sarah are selling candy for a school fundraiser. Customers can buy small boxes of candy and large boxes of candy. Beth sold 9 small boxes of candy and 10 large boxes of candy for a total of $173. Sarah sold 8 small boxes of candy and 5 large boxes of candy for a total of $111.

Using x for the number of small boxes of candy and y for the number of large boxes of candy, identify the two equations that represent the boxes of candy they are selling.

     A 8x + 5y = 173

     B 9x + 10y = 173       ✔

     C 10x + 9y = 111

     D 8x + 5y = 111          ✔

    It’s b and d. It’s not that hard. If Beth sold 9 small boxes then it’s 9x. If she sold 100 large boxes then it’s 100y. 

    What is so hard.
