Hi mom;

You have some questions in the other thread.

y = ( 3 / 4 ) x + 3

There is no reason to remove the post. You can just post a new post saying that you have solved it.

Which one that I picked for the issue of the TV's? I posted my answer in the thread. I didn't use a formula, I did a process of evaluation being that 4 more were sold than the other and the total received was provided.

Hi mom;

That is what I am getting at.

I did a process of evaluation being that 4 more were sold than the other and the total received was provided.

You left out the condition of 4 more sold! That is what was needed to narrow down the answer.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
