Grade 10 Problem Solving Strategies CCSS: HSN-Q.A.2

Angela sells baked goods at a summer market each year. The two main baked goods are apple turnovers and chocolate caramel cupcakes. Unfortunately, she does not keep very good records, and cannot remember exactly what price she sold each for last year. She remembers that one day she sold 50 cupcakes and 30 turnovers, and made about $135. Another day, she sold 40 cupcakes and 40 turnovers, and made $140. If she were to create a model to solve for how much she sold each baked good for, what would be a good variable(s) to create?
  1. Just one variable, the average cost of a baked good.
  2. Two variables, one for the cost to make the baked goods, and another for the total revenue of the baked goods.
  3. Two variables, one for the total number of turnovers sold, and another for the total number of cupcakes sold.
  4. Two variables, one for the cost of a turnover, and one for the cost of a cupcake.
